Multimode transmission of continuous wave 633 nm radiation and 1064 nm Q-switched Nd:YAG pulses using silver coated hollow core optical waveguides (HCWs) with bore diameters of 700 μm and 1000 μm is reported. The effect of launch conditions, input beam polarization and waveguide bore diameter on the pulse energy transmission and potential for focussing the beam effectively at the HCW exit is detailed. An optimal launch f-number range of 155–165 is identified for minimizing the exit angle.
