Hollow optical wave-guides represent an alternative method for the delivery of short laser pulses to a target tissue or a target detector. In many applications, the delivery may require bending and winding through various openings and conduits. Hollow waveguides are made of teflon or silica tubes and allow flexibility and rigidity including the ability to operate in a liquid environment. Biomedical applications include diagnostics and surgery. This study evaluates the use of hollow waveguides for the delivery of short and ultra short laser pulses.
