Hollow plastic fibers were produced by depositing metallic and dielectric films on the internal surface of plastic tubes. These fibers can transmit high CO2 laser energy with low atten-uation even in curved trajectories. A mathematical model was developed to describe the energy transmission. The energy distribution at the outlet of the fiber was measured and found to be influenced by the existence of whispering gallery mode. These fibers are suitable for surgical uses.
