Abstract

Hollow core photonic bandgap fibres can achieve light guidance in air, which offers a number of potential benefits for applications relevant to electro-magnetic remote sensing, including higher nonlinear and damage thresholds for high power beam delivery and operation at wavelengths that are not feasible using conventional fibres. Because they rely on coherent scattering from a highly ordered lattice of air holes as the mechanism of light guidance, bandgap fibres can only operate over a finite range of wavelengths. This paper investigates the parameters affecting the bandwidth of transmission in PBGFs and identifies realistic PBGF structures for wide-bandwidth operation in the SWIR wavelength region.
