Paper Abstract

In this paper we report on the fabrication and characterization of hollow core photonic bandgap fibers that do not suffer from surface mode coupling. This enables low loss over the full spectral width of the photonic bandgap formed in the cladding. It also enables reduced dispersion slope, which is a key parameter for several applications of these fibers to high-power ultrashort pulse compression.
