Abstract

Microstructured crystalline optical fiber from silver halides is described. Both experimental and theoretical evidences are presented to establish that the fiber is effectively single mode at wavelength 10.6μm with numerical aperture NA=0.16 and optical losses of 2dBm. Crystalline microstructured optical fibers offer key advantages over step-index optical fibers from silver halide crystals. The wide transmission range of wavelengths 220μm provides great potential for applications in spectroscopy and for the development of a range of new crystalline-based nonlinear optical fibers.
