Paper Abstract

Microstructured optical fibers are of increasing interest since they offer unique optical properties and design flexibility that cannot be achieved in conventional forms of fiber. We review structural features, fabrication, optical properties and potential applications of index-guiding holey optical fibers. The state-of-the-art is presented for both silica and compound glass holey fibers.
