Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

By designing and fabricating optical fibers using photonic crystal materials as cladding, one can create fibers with previously unimaginable waveguiding properties. The development of photonic crystal fiber substantially broadens the possible applications for fiber optics
