Abstract

A preform sleeving technique is demonstrated that allows the fabrication of single-mode polymer microstructured fiber with the smallest core and hole dimensions yet reported to our knowledge. For a fixed triangular hole pattern a range of fibers is produced by adjustment to the operating conditions of the draw tower. Numerical modeling is carried out for one of the fibers produced with a 570-µm external diameter, a core diameter of 2.23 µm, an average hole diameter of 0.53 µm, and an average hole spacing of 1.38 µm. This fiber was shown to be endlessly single mode.
