Record low loss hollow core fiber for the 1µm region

Record low loss hollow core fiber for the 1µm region
Hollow core (HC) antiresonant fibers (ARFs) offer potential for low optical loss, low glass-mode overlap, and wide transmission bandwidth that could cover regions from the UV to the Mid-IR, and be optimized to work in the 1μm and 1.55μm bands [1,2]. The optical properties of ARFs depend mainly on the arrangement and thickness of the core surrounding membranes. To date, the state-of-the-art optical loss in a 1μm-guiding HCF is reported by Maurel et al. [3] in a Kagome fiber, showing 8.5dB/km at the Nd-Yb:YAG laser wavelengths. Other low loss results at the 1μm region have been reported by Wheeler et al. [4] showing 12.3dB/km at 1010nm in a Kagome HCF; Chen et al. [5] showing 12.3dB/km at 1047nm in a 37-cell photonic bandgap fiber (PBGF); and Debord et al. [6] showing a loss of 8–20dB/km in the 800–1200nm region in tubular lattice HCF. The addition of smaller nested tubes to the known ‘tubular’ hollow core ARFs can considerably reduce their optical loss, allowing in principle a HC-Nested Antiresonant Nodeless Fiber (NANF) to achieve total loss values lower than conventional solid fibers [7].

Abstract

Hollow core (HC) antiresonant fibers (ARFs) offer potential for low optical loss, low glass-mode overlap, and wide transmission bandwidth that could cover regions from the UV to the Mid-IR, and be optimized to work in the 1μm and 1.55μm bands [1,2]. The optical properties of ARFs depend mainly on the arrangement and thickness of the core surrounding membranes. To date, the state-of-the-art optical loss in a 1μm-guiding HCF is reported by Maurel et al. [3] in a Kagome fiber, showing 8.5dB/km at the Nd-Yb:YAG laser wavelengths. Other low loss results at the 1μm region have been reported by Wheeler et al. [4] showing 12.3dB/km at 1010nm in a Kagome HCF; Chen et al. [5] showing 12.3dB/km at 1047nm in a 37-cell photonic bandgap fiber (PBGF); and Debord et al. [6] showing a loss of 8–20dB/km in the 800–1200nm region in tubular lattice HCF. The addition of smaller nested tubes to the known ‘tubular’ hollow core ARFs can considerably reduce their optical loss, allowing in principle a HC-Nested Antiresonant Nodeless Fiber (NANF) to achieve total loss values lower than conventional solid fibers [7]. Recent NANF results showed loss of 1.3dB/km at 1450nm (Bradley et al. [8].) ...&more
