Light cable
Explanation:
Light guide is a cable that leads light. See the reference. It looks just like a normal cable.

This is a good example too.

This cable can lead light to the fiber inorder to masure fiber cables accuracy. WHen you bent this cable, you can not get any light. Liquid light guide is a light guide has a liquid core inside.

I hope it helps.

Normally, glass is used for the fiber core, that is why they are called glass fiber but you have limited usage and there are some disabantages. Instead of using glass, this liquid fibers are using liquid for core.

Make sense??

What they use for the core liquid is mostly confidential to prevent people making copy products!

makes sense ;)) thank you very much

A liquid light guide is a pressurized tube, comprising a Teflon cladding, filled with a liquid and plugged at both ends. Liquid light guides operate on the same TlR principle, with the respective indices of refraction of the liquid and cladding driving selective refraction. The liquid is either an alcohol base or a saline base, depending on the type of light being transmitted.

Liquid light guides are much more expensive than polymer and glass optical fibers, and only large diameters are available. As opposed to architectural or general lighting, liquid light guides are more commonly used in specialty applications, such as transmitting UV light for curing and industrial or medical purposes.
