Paper Abstract

Glass core and hollow core chalocogenide fibers were fabricated and coated with Teflon cladding for protection. The dimensions of the hollow core fiber were 30-600μm OD, 20-500μm ID and up to tens of meters in length. Attenuation measurements were performed with a lead salt tunable diode laser as well as with a CO2 laser. The power loss due to bending for a fiber with a hollow core, and the far field power distribution of this kind of fiber, are also reported. Spectral dependence of the fibers in the region 10-13 μm was obtained using diode lasers. The advantages of glass core and hollow core fibers are discussed.
