Where to Buy Hollow-core Fibers

Hollow-core fibers have little overlap of the guided light with the fiber glass and therefore exhibit only weak nonlinear effects. Additionally, they have unique dispersion properties and are used in applications such as fiber-optic gas lasers, fiber Raman lasers, and gas spectroscopy.

hollow-core fibers

Optical signals in a hollow core photonic bandgap fiber are guided in an air core surrounded by a PBG microstructured region. In addition to the low bend sensitivity, this fiber design exhibits significantly reduced material nonlinearities since more than 95% of optical power is propagating in air. In addition, air/undoped silica provides excellent temperature immunity, which is critical for high performance fiber sensing and metrology applications.

Optical signals in a hollow core anti-resonant fiber propagate in an air core surrounded by a single ring of anti-resonant tube elements. Guidance is based on an anti-resonance from the thin glass membranes constituted by the non-touching tubes surrounding the hollow core. The extremely low overlap of guided power with the surrounding silica, less than 2 · 10−5, in addition to the large effective mode area, leads to a record-low optical nonlinearity.
