Abstract

A dielectric-coated monolithic hollow metallic waveguide was developed for the transmission of CO2 laser light which employs a hollow silver tube as the support onto which a dense, defect-free native silver halide coating was formed. This waveguide exhibited high-power transmission and low loss of CO2 laser light when tested straight and bent. The performance of this hollow metallic waveguide is discussed in terms of surface finish, dielectric film thickness and dielectric film quality. © 1993.
