An improved photonic bandgap fiber based on an array of rings.


We describe the modeling, fabrication and characterization of a silica-core photonic bandgap fiber based on a 2-d array of raised-index cladding rings. The use of rings to form the cladding is shown to re-order the cladding modes in such a way as to broaden the photonic band gaps and reduce bend sensitivity. We compare the performance of the ring fiber with that of a similar fiber made using solid rods.
