Power delivery of free electron laser light by hollow glass waveguides.


Hollow glass waveguides are used to deliver free electron laser (FEL) energy for applications in medicine and laser surgery. The hollow guides, optimized for the delivery of 6.45-μm FEL radiation, exhibited losses for the 1000-μm bore as low as 0.39 dB/m when the guide was straight and 1.75 dB/m when bent to a radius of 25 cm. Hollow glass guides are flexible, and their broadband capability provides an ideal fiber optic for the tunable FEL.
