Paper Abstract

A few-mode microstructured optical fiber is designed for low bending loss applications. Low-index rods and air-holes are applied to lower the splicing loss with the standard single-mode optical fiber (SMF) and to achieve ultra-low bending loss. Numerical results show that the proposed fiber can realize low bending loss of 0.004  dB/turn at the bending radius of 5 mm and low splicing of 0.04 dB with the standard SMF.
