Abstract

A microstructured optical fiber with a single design parameter is proposed and demonstrated. In such a structure three thin, long glass webs join in the fiber center, forming its core. By changing the web thickness it is possible to tune the zero-dispersion wavelength from ~0.7 to >2.0 μm while keeping a tiny core area and single-mode guidance. Supercontinuum generation is shown in a silica fiber with a web thickness of 850 nm. The small core area and the massive hole area also make the structure very attractive for the sensing and study of fluids.
