Abstract

Both numerical and experimental analyses are carried out to investigate the spectral characteristics of antiresonant guiding photonic crystal fibers. The transmission minima were observed at the wavelengths where LPml (m4, l=1,2,3,) modes of the high-index inclusions in the cladding are cut off. As the order of modes increases, the bandwidths of the corresponding stop bands gradually reduce.
