Paper Abstract

The well-controlled guided modes and long path-lengths offered by both solid and hollow core photonic crystal fibres (PCFs) permit remarkable enhancements (and in some cases reductions) in many kinds of light-matter interaction. Recent examples include: Ultrafast spectrally bright deep and vacuum UV sources based on gas-filled hollow core PCF (pressure-tunable dispersion is a unique feature); generation of stable bright deep UV supercontinuum light in PCF drawn from the fluorozirconate glass ZBLAN; OAM-birefringent helically twisted PCF that preserves the sign of orbital angular momentum; and light-driven optoacoustic devices that permit stable high harmonic mode-locking of fiber ring lasers at GHz repetition rates.
