Paper Abstract

An efficient increasing of transmission line can be produced with hollow waveguide at IR range. In this paper we are discussed the current status of hollow waveguides. The hollow core structure is well suited for the transmission of high laser powers as well as for some other applications. Hollow waveguides are an attractive alternative to solid-core IR fibers. Today losses for these unique guides are as 0.1 dB/m. Optical connecting of a waveguide laser with the hollow waveguides are discussed. A theoretical model of a fiber-coupling CO2 laser and a pigtail-type CO2 laser with As2S3 optical fiber are analyzed also.
