Paper Abstract

Recent years have seen the development of a range of promising optical fibre technologies emerge, enabled by advances in materials and fabrication techniques. We describe 3 emerging areas in optical fibre developments: nanomechanical optical fibres, microstructured hollow core silica fibres for high peak optical power and/or extended infrared transmission, and chalcogenide glasses and fibres for mid-IR applications.
