Loss measurements of microstructured optical fibres with metal-nanoparticle inclusions.
Electronics Letters, 44, (13), . (doi:10.1049/el:20080545).
Optical losses of measured optical fibres (MOFs) with silver nanoparticle inclusions are measured when visible light is guided in the core. The high pressure chemical deposition technique used to deposit the metal offers good control of the particle sizes allowing for varying transmission properties. The low losses demonstrate the potential for the silver impregnated MOFs to be integrated with conventional optical fibre devices.
