Abstract

We demonstrate the first fluorozirconate microstructured fiber for use in the mid-infrared. The fiber preform was manufactured via extrusion of a 200g billet through a complex graphite die. The fiber exhibits large mode area of 6600μm2, loss of 3dBm at 4μm and only marginal excess loss relative to a corresponding unstructured fiber.
