Abstract
Several types of lasers CO2 in its pulsed mode and Er-YAG pulsed laser were transmitted by the plastic flexible waveguides which were developed in our laboratory. The pulse transmission was characterized and the connection between the transmission and pulse duration, pause between pulsed and frequency was investigated. It was found, that a longer pausebetween consecutive pulses improve the transmission in the CO2 laser. In the Er-YAG laser the pause between consecutive pulses is long in comparison to the pulse duration in the 3, 5 and 8 Hz mode so there is almost no dependence of transmission on frequency.
