All-silica single-mode optical fiber with photonic crystal cladding

By J.C. Knight, T.A. Birks, P.St.J. Russell and D.M. Atkin


We report the fabrication of a new type of optical waveguide: the photonic crystal fiber. It consists of a pure silica core surrounded by a silica-air photonic crystal material with a hexagonal symmetry. The fiber supports a single robust low-loss guided mode over a very broad spectral range of at least 458-1550 nm. Also see errata -
