Abstract
The infrared transmission properties of uniformly curved hollow dielectric guides, usually found by solving the field equations in toroidal coordinates, are studied here in terms of the modes of the straight guide. The results are in encouraging agreement with experiments at 10.6 μm on short bent silica tubes. Mode output quality and guide dissipative losses are seen to depend sharply on curvature and guide geometry.
