Abstract

A new ultra-low bending loss single-mode fiber with ring comprising nanometer sized features is designed and manufactured. Bending loss less than 0.1 dB/turn at 1550 nm and a bend radius of 5 mm is demonstrated. Other optical parameters of the fiber are fully compatible the standard telecommunications grade single-mode fibers.
