Paper Abstract

In this paper results of soft glass single mode photonic crystal fibers (PCF) fabrication are presented. Using "stack and draw" technique a few kinds of PCFs (various core sizes and filling factors) made of multicomponent glasses has been successfully fabricated. Two glasses, developed in-house at the Institute of Electronic Materials Technology (ITME), have been used. High refractive index (nD=1.94) lead-bismuth-gallate glass (PGB-08) and borosilicate glass (NC21A). We have achieved attenuation 3.9 - 5.1dB/m (λ=806nm) for fibers made of NC21A glass and 15dB/m (λ=632.8nm) for PBG08 glass. Glasses attenuation: NC21A - 3.2dB/m, PBG-08 - 14.5dB/m. Fibers have very regular photonic cladding with filling factor in range 0.2 - 0.7.
