We report on the use of the atomic layer deposition (ALD) process for fabricating liquid core antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides (ARROWs). The ALD permits the deposition of a very conformal sub-100-nm titanium dioxide antiresonant layer. This results in a low loss liquid core ARROW waveguide with a broadband output transmission spectrum. Optical transmitted spectrum from the fabricated structure has been reported, and the measured attenuation losses agree with the theoretical predictions.
