Paper Abstract

Photonic crystal optical fiber from silver halide crystals is described. Both experimental and theoretical evidences are presented to establish that the fiber is effectively singlemode at wavelength 10.6 &mgr;m with numerical aperture NA = 0.16 and optical losses of 2 dB/m . Crystalline microstructured optical fibers offer key advantages over step-index optical fibers from silver halide crystals. The wide transmission range of wavelengths 2-20 &mgr;m provides great potential for applications in spectroscopy and for the development of a range of new crystalline-based non-linear optical fibers.
