Paper Abstract

Hollow waveguides have been well characterized for their optical properties, but many applications require long-term reliability as well as short-term performance. The average strength and the strength distribution of hollow glass waveguides (HGWs) have been evaluated. In addition, the effects of processing on waveguide strength have been assessed. In limited life-test data, waveguides up to one- year old have shown no measurable change in their transmission losses.
