Abstract

Rubidium vapor is loaded into hypocycloidal core shaped Kagome hollow-core photonic crystal fiber (HC-PCF) with the wall of its inner core coated with aluminosilicate ceramic (sol-gel). We show that the presence of Rb vapor is maintained for a longer duration when compared to uncoated Kagome HC-PCF. Rb vapor within the hollow-core of a sol-gel coated Kagome HC-PCF is preserved for over 500 h after the source of Rb is halted. And Rb vapor is detected in the sol-gel coated HC-PCF for more than 80 h after the background Rb vapor signal is no longer observed.
