Abstract

The hollow regions of an anti-resonant fiber (ARF) offer an excellent template for the deposition of functional materials. When the optical properties of such materials can be modified via external stimuli, it offers a method to control the transmission properties of the fiber device. In this letter, we show that integration of a MoS2 film into the ARF voids allows the fiber to act as an electro-optical modulator. We record a maximum modulation depth of 3.5 dB at 744 nm, with an average insertion loss of 7.5 dB.
