Long wavelength anti-resonant guidance in high index inclusion microstructured fibers.


Microstructured optical fibers consisting of a low refractive index core surrounded by high index inclusions guide by anti-resonant reflection. Previous experiments considered only wavelengths that are short compared to microstructure dimensions. We experimentally investigate a microstructured fiber with high index inclusions and demonstrate antiresonant guidance at long wavelengths. We also numerically simulate these structures, including coupling loss, propagation loss, and structural disorder, and compare with the experimental results.
