Paper Abstract

Liquid-phase deposition technique is applied to form a silver film inside the inner-surface of silica capillary base on the method of silver mirror reaction. Using this fabrication method, we have succeeded in making hollow waveguides with a bore size of 1mm and a guide with length of as long as 2m on our self-producing apparatus. The maximum transmission efficiency of hollow-core fiber without dielectric coating can be up to 85 percent and loss can be low to 1.0dB/m.
