Paper Abstract

Some PCF fabrication techniques are discussed. Effects of draw conditions on the capillaries and the geometry of the final photonic crystal fiber (PCF) are investigated experimentally. The cross-sectional hole structure can be adjusted to a certain extent by controlling the parameters such as the temperature, the feed and draw speed or combinations of these. Since the improvement is limited and hardly can a satisfactory fiber be obtained, the inert gas pressurization method is introduced. It is testified feasible and effective in tuning the geometry of the final PCF and PCFs of good uniformity are fabricated experimentally.
