Paper Abstract

The photonic crystal fiber (PCF) and the PCF based structure are playing more and more important role in the optical communication and optical sensors fields. Fabrication technique is the key for realizing the design of PCF. In this paper the fabrication process of PCF is described, which includes stacking, jacketing, collapsing, stretching and drawing on a conventional drawing tower. To maintain the uniform air hole structure, positive micro-pressure has been introduced in the drawing processing. The multi-pole method is used to analyze the PCF structure with one hexagonal array of air cylinder photonics crystal fibers. The theoretical and experimental results show that the PCF fabricated under this way has good performance and coincidence indicator. Several PCF based structures have been studied and developed. It is predicted that the PCF based structures have some funny characteristics, which could find important application in the fiber-optic communication and sensing systems.
