Paper Abstract

Hollow planar optical waveguides have been realized for single mode propagation of IR radiation beams at 10.6 μm. Attenuation of about 0.15 dB/m has been obtained for the first order TE0 mode in metallic waveguides and about 0.3 dB/m for both TE0 and TM1 modes in dielectric coated metallic waveguides (composite structures). Using a flexible structure, TE and TM losses better than 1 dB/m are obtained for curvature radii of about 30 cm.
