Abstract

A method is proposed to evaluate the material dispersion of dielectric film in dielectric-coated silver hollow fiber. Cauchy’s formulas that characterize the dispersion property were obtained for several commonly used dielectric materials by using the measured data of loss spectra of the hollow fibers. The wavelengths of the loss peaks and valleys in the loss spectra can be predicted more accurately when taking into consideration of the material dispersion. The derived Cauchy’s formulas play an important role in the design of infrared hollow fiber for multiwavelength delivery.
