Abstract

Refractive indices and extinction coefficients of several polymers have been measured for the wide infrared wavelength region. The polymers used as coating materials have also been found useful for low-loss hollow waveguides for the transmission of Er:YAG, CO, and CO2 laser light, respectively.
