Abstract

Recently a new class of optical fibre has emerged: the microstructured fibre. One example is the holey fibre (HF), which has a cladding region defined by air holes (see Figure 1). Light is guided in a HF due to the effective refractive index contrast between the solid core and the holey cladding. This contrast is typically a strong function of wavelength, and this leads to a host of novel optical properties. [1,2] Microstructured, fibres offer new alternatives for sensing, and they can be divided into two categories: those which use the holes directly, and those which exploit their unusual optical properties.
