Paper Abstract

Considerable interest has been shown recently in the potential of flexible hollow core waveguides for the transmission of CO2 laser radiation. The theoretical background relevant to the principles of operation will be outlined, together with the possible advantages of such waveguides. Comparisons will be made between transmission characteristics predicted by the theoretical treatments currently available, and those observed experimentally. The materials properties involved in determining the performance of hollow core waveguides will be described and the potential for improving transmission characteristics through choice of waveguide material will be discussed.
