Abstract
Hollow fibers for variety of IR lasers are introduced. FOr delivery of IR lasers represented by CO2, Er:YAG, and Nd:YAG lasers, hollow fibers having a dielectric and a silver film on the inside of glass tubing have been developed. It is shown that the fibers transmit high-powered laser light with low attenuation due to the interference effect of the internal dielectric layer. Hollow fibers enable many applications in industrial and medical fields that need effective delivery medium of laser light.
