Abstract

The variation in properties of a fluorocarbon polymer (FCP) film during a drying–curing process is investigated for fabricating FCP-coated silver (FCP/Ag) hollow glass waveguides. A dynamic liquid-phase coating procedure is used. Through the analyses of the loss spectra of hollow waveguides made in various conditions, a relationship between the thickness of the FCP film and the coating velocity is obtained. The optimum fabrication condition is also established for producing FCP/Ag hollow glass waveguides for the mid-IR.
