Paper Abstract

Copper hollow waveguides with an inner dielectric layer have been developed by using simple techniques of chemical etching and oxidation for the inner wall of the copper tubes. Transmission properties of hollow waveguides have been measured. It is shown, for the first time that a thin Cu2O layer is obtained by using chemical oxidation techniques. It is also shown that the thickness of a Cu2O layer can be controlled by the oxidation time.
