Knight, J.C., Birks, T.A., Russell, P.St.J. and Atkin, D.M. (1996) All-silica single-mode optical fiber with photonic crystal cladding Optics Letters, 21, (19), pp. 1547-1549. (doi:10.1364/OL.21.001547).

Record type: Article


We report the fabrication of a new type of optical waveguide: the photonic crystal fiber. It consists of a pure silica core surrounded by a silica-air photonic crystal material with a hexagonal symmetry. The fiber supports a single robust low-loss guided mode over a very broad spectral range of at least 458-1550 nm. Also see errata -
