Abstract

A vitreous material with an optimum reflective index of 1.41 for dielectric metallic hollow fiber is used for what is believed to be the first time. A smooth vitreous film is formed by the treatment of a hardener at room temperature by using the liquid-phase coating technique. Low-loss properties were obtained in both the infrared and visible wavelength regions, and the fibers are of high durability when sterilized. This hollow fiber is promising for use in medical applications or other harsh environments.
