Abstract
Hollow fibers were made of plastic materials with both metallic and dielectric inside coating. Previous theoretical investigation had shown that by the use of optimal metallic and dielectric layers, low attenuation could be achieved, even for bent fibers. Experimentally, the attenuation of 2 dB/m was measured for a 3 mm diameter flexible plastic waveguide.
