Plastic hollow fibers for IR transmission were characterized employing several physical and chemical methods. The dielectric layer was found to be β-AgI or γ-AgI on the surface. The amount of iodine decreases gradually at deeper layers. The equivalent depth was determined from coulometric experiments; 0.3-1.6 μm. Several treatments in dermatology and oral surgery were carried out.
