Paper Abstract

A series-parallel model is introduced to calculate the effective thermal conductivities of hollow claddings of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs). The temperature distribution and thermal-optical properties of PCF lasers are studied by solving the heat transfer equations. The average power scaling of the PCF lasers in respect of the thermal effects is also discussed.
