Bend loss in structured optical fibres.

Author information

Bend loss characterisation tests are carried out in two air-silica structured fibres: a periodic photonic crystal fibre and a non-periodic fibre. An explanation based on resonant coupling between interstitial zones accounts for the improved confinement of non-periodic structured optical fibres.
