New frontiers in functionalized optical fibers

Over the years, the techniques to incorporate functional materials into high aspect ratio capillary templates have become more sophisticated, with the materials catalogue now extending to gases, metals, soft glasses, and semiconductors.

Abstract

One of the earliest examples of functionalized fibers dates back to the liquid-core fibers investigated in the 1970s. At the time, these fibers exhibited some of the lowest transmission losses to enable many of the first demonstrations of nonlinear optical effects in the fiber geometry. Over the years, the techniques to incorporate functional materials into high aspect ratio capillary templates have become more sophisticated, with the materials catalogue now extending to gases, metals, soft glasses, and semiconductors. Significantly, development in this field has coincided with the advent of microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) which can serve as three dimensional templates for the materials infiltration. By exploiting the design flexibility afforded by the MOFs, the light-matter interactions can be precisely controlled to tailor the properties of the hybrid fibers. This presentation will review the recent advancements in this field with particular focus on the development of functionalized fibers for optoelectronic technologies.
