We have fabricated hollow glass fibers with an internal metal and polymer film. The fibers are fabricated by a simple, liquid phase technique or metal-organic CVD process. These fibers show low transmission losses and high power capability for ultraviolet to infrared lasers that are useful for industrial and medical applications. We review the fabrication process and transmission characteristics of hollow fibers for high-power Nd:YAG and excimer lasers.
