Abstract
For delivery of ArF and KrF excimer laser light, a hollow fiber composed of a glass capillary tube and an aluminum thin film on the inside was proposed. A thin aluminum film is deposited by metal-organic chemical vapor deposition employing dimethylethylamine alane as the source material. Measured loss spectra in vacuum-UV and UV regions and measured losses for ArF-excimer laser light show the low loss property of the aluminum-coated fiber at both of the ArF and KrF excimer laser light. The straight loss of 1-m long, 1-mm bore fiber was 1.0 dB for ArF and 0.4 dB for KrF excimer lasers.
