Holey optical fibres: fundamentals and applications

Holey optical fibres: fundamentals and applications
Holey optical fibres: fundamentals and applications
The area of holey fibres, i.e. optical fibres containing a fine array of microscopic air-holes that pass along the full fibre length, has developed into a topic of acute fundamental scientific and technological interest in recent years due to the unique optical properties that such fibres can possess. These properties include amongst others: endlessly single-mode guidance, high/low nonlinearity, guidance in a low-index air core and anomalous dispersion at wavelengths down to the visible.
In this presentation I shall describe the mechanisms by which light can be guided within a holey fibre, discuss various regimes of operation and review the current state-of-the-art in terms of fibre fabrication. Finally, I shall present various applications of the technology in areas such as high power laser generation and transport, linear and nonlinear pulse compression, supercontinuum generation and all-optical switching and processing.

Abstract

The area of holey fibres, i.e. optical fibres containing a fine array of microscopic air-holes that pass along the full fibre length, has developed into a topic of acute fundamental scientific and technological interest in recent years due to the unique optical properties that such fibres can possess. These properties include amongst others: endlessly single-mode guidance, high/low nonlinearity, guidance in a low-index air core and anomalous dispersion at wavelengths down to the visible.
In this presentation I shall describe the mechanisms by which light can be guided within a holey fibre, discuss various regimes of operation and review the current state-of-the-art in terms of fibre fabrication. Finally, I shall present various applications of the technology in areas such as high power laser generation and transport, linear and nonlinear pulse compression, supercontinuum generation and all-optical switching and processing.
