Paper Abstract

Hollow-core microstructured fibres are designed for the short wavelength domains, either visible or ultra-violet ones. The experimental results confirm that kagomé-lattice antiresonant fibres are good candidate for this purpose. Thorough numerical modelling is carried out in order to determine the physical causes responsible for the loss level observed. From these computations the following conclusions are drawn: (i) the sole antiresonant core surround dictates the location of the transmission windows and (ii) the cladding bridges are sources of extra leakage from the core to the surrounding solid cladding. A straightforward model is therefore devised to determine accurately the loss level in this kind of structure by quasi-analytical calculus.
