Hollow-core revolver fibers (RF) are a special type of hollow optical fibers with negative curvature of the core-cladding boundary. Their reflective cladding usually consists of a single layer of capillaries surrounding the hollow core. The physical mechanisms responsible for the waveguide properties of these fibers are discussed. A review of the optical properties and possible applications of hollow-core revolver fibers is given. Particular attention is paid to hydrogen Raman lasers of the mid-­IR spectral range based on hollow-core revolver fibers and emitting in the range of 2.9–4.4 μm.
