Paper Abstract

By means of the transfer matrix method, the optical properties of fibers with a distinct intermediate layer between a hollow core and periodic cladding are calculated. The periodic cladding consists of two types of the alternating layers. The intermediate layer has distinct thickness and refractive index. Depending on these parameters, the fiber can work in the single-mode or multi-mode regimes. In the multi-mode regime, the optical loss of the smallest loss mode can be decreased by increasing the thickness of the layer. In the single-mode regime, the optical loss falls with a rise in the refractive index of the intermediate layer. The optical properties of the fiber are determined by the antiresonance reflection from the intermediate layer and the Bragg reflection from the periodic cladding. Selecting the parameters of the intermediate layer, the optical loss of the fiber in the single-mode regime can be reduced by an order of magnitude over the loss of the traditional Bragg fiber.
