Abstract

The authors of this paper investigated the thermal properties and optical properties of typical nonsilica glasses, including viscosity,surface tension, thermal conductivity, transmission, linear and nonlinear refractive index, and fiber attenuation in order to judge the feasibility of using nonsilica glasses as the background material of holey fibers (HFs). Novel techniques were presented to fabricate the nonsilica glass microstructured fiber preforms. Examples of fabricated nonsilica glass HFs with various promising optical applications were finally exhibited.
