Author Affiliations +
A comprehensive theoretical model was developed to describe mid IR laser radiation propagation in an optical cylindrical waveguide. The effects of bending the waveguide on the transmission and beam shape were studied. The same parameters were used in the theoretical calculations as well as in the experiments. Good agreement between the theoretical and experimental results was found.
