Abstract

We describe the design and fabrication of a photonic bandgap fiber formed with two different glasses. As in a hollow-core fiber, light is guided in a low-index core region because of the antiresonances of the high-index strands in the fiber cladding. The structure described represents an ideal bandgap fiber that exhibits no interface modes and guides over the full width of multiple bandgaps.

Fig. 1

Bandgap plots of the same size rods placed at different distances, with the white regions having zero density of photonic states. The background index was set to n2=1.54, and the index of the rods was n1=1.79.

Fig. 2
Fig. 2

(a) Backscattered electron images of the all-solid photonic bandgap fiber. The black structure is the LLF1 rods and the white areas are the SF6 rods. (b) Measured near-field patterns of guided modes. A 3-nm bandpass filter was used at the input. The wavelengths for the top and bottom images were 690 and 575 nm, respectively. The transmission spectrum of the fiber sample is shown in Fig. 4(a), below.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3

Comparison of bandgap plots for the idealized array of circular high-index rods and for the array of star-shaped high-index rods found in the actual fibers. High-index material is represented in black.

Fig. 4
Fig. 4

(a) Comparison of the transmission spectrum measured through a fiber sample of 20-cm length with the normalized density of states11 (DOS) computed along the line β=n2k0. The spikes near the 1064-nm wavelength are the residual pump that was used to form the supercontinuum for the measurement. (b) Measured group index of the fundamental guided mode and the group-velocity dispersion (GVD) across two of the bandgaps. The dashed curve is the core material group index.
