Abstract
Our optical waveguides are silica capillaries filled with xenon at atmospheric pressure. Outside the capillary helium gas "outer cladding" insures a positive refractive index difference Δn between core and cladding. The propagation losses have been calculated and compared to some preliminary measurements. In such fibers, the attenuation is high because once infrared light is injected, several hgih order modes are excited. We are studying the low loss properties of tapered xenon-core capillary.
