A report on the photonic crystal fibers (PCF) was presented. The group velocity dispersion (GVD) characteristic of the fiber was shown to differ from those achieved using conventional fiber technology. The optical properties of a periodic silica-air photonic crystal were compared to those of conventional bulk materials. The optical micrograph showed the output face of an air-core fiber when the input was illuminated with a white light source.
