Paper Abstract

We review the recent progress on the enhanced inhibited coupling in kagome hollow-core photonic crystal fiber by introducing negative curvature in the fiber-core shape. We show that increasing the hypocycloid contour curvature leads to a dramatic decrease in transmission loss and optical overlap with the silica surround and to a single modedness. Fabricated hypocycloid-core hollow-core photonic crystal fibers with a transmission loss in the range of 20-40 dB/km and for a spectral range of 700 nm-2000 nm have now become typical.
