Paper Abstract

We study the group-velocity dispersion properties of a novel class of Bragg fibers. They are radially-symmetric microstructured fibers having a high-index core (silica in our case) surrounded by a cylindrical multilayer omnidirectional mirror as cladding, which is formed by a set of alternating layers of silica and a lower refractive-index dielectric. The interplay between the unusual geometric dispersion shown by the multilayer cladding of the fiber and the material dispersion corresponding to the silica core allows us to achieve an achromatic flattened dispersion behavior in the 0.8 μm wavelength window and even an ultraflattened behavior in the 1.5 μm range for some specific designs.
