Paper Abstract

Fluorocarbon-polymer coated hollow waveguides have been proposed for the first time for infrared light transmissions in the fields of medicine and infrared measurements. The fluorocarbon-polymer has many advantages over other dielectrics such as non-toxicity, durability, and low-loss property. Two types of coating methods have been employed to fabricate the waveguides and loss spectra of the waveguides have been measured. It is shown that fluorocarbon-polymer coated hollow waveguides have low loss characteristics.
