Paper Abstract

The paper describes the propagation of CO2 laser beam through a flexible hollow metallic waveguide. Input power of 1 kW has been considered, making such a guide useful for material processing. The guide has been theoretically studied and experimentally tested in various bending and twisting configurations. A transmission of up to 95 % has been obtained for near kW incident power.
