  1. The ornamental design of a hollow cover for a lightwave source, as shown and described.

FIG. 1 is a front view of one embodiment of the hollow cover for a lightwave source;

FIG. 2 is a side view, top view and bottom view of the embodiment of FIG. 1;

FIG. 3 is a back view of the embodiment of FIG. 1;

FIG. 4 is a front view of another embodiment of the hollow cover for a lightwave source;

FIG. 5 is a side view, top view and bottom view of the embodiment of FIG. 4; and,

FIG. 6 is a back view of the embodiment of FIG. 4.

The hollow cover for a lightwave source, such as an infrared light emitting diode, is for mounting onto a planar surface. When mounted, the front, the two sides, the top, and the bottom of the cover typically are all in view. The cover is translucent or slightly transparent due to coloration, and all outer facets thereof in view when the bezel is mounted are planar. In the figures the rectangular shaded areas having rounded corners are areas visually distinguishable in appearance from the remainder of the bezel, as such areas are less translucent because of somewhat lighter coloration.
