Paper Abstract

We demonstrate the fabrication of the internally liquid-filled photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) with the liquids filled in inner air-hole layers of the PCFs. The outer air-hole layers are first blocked by using a selectively blocking technique with a polished fiber tip. The liquid is then infiltrated into the inner open holes through a vacuum injection method to obtain the internally liquid-filled PCFs. The measurement results show that the propagation losses of the internally liquid-filled PCFs can be efficiently reduced with the aid of the outer air-hole layers in the fiber cladding. By varying the operation temperature, we also demonstrate the thermally tunable optical properties of our fabricated internally liquidfilled PCFs.
