Paper Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a novel optical fiber, referred to as Fresnel fiber. This fiber has equal area rings and is fabricated using two materials only. Transmission properties of Fresnel fibers, including axial propagation constant, effective area, and dispersion, are investigated. Design of these fibers for large or small effective area and prescribed dispersion characteristics, required for sensing or communication applications, are also addressed.
