Paper Abstract

Photonic crystal fibres (PCFs) offer the possibility of new applications in astronomy with important benefits to interferometry and multiplexed spectroscopy for Extremely Large Telescopes (ELTs) which is subject to unfavourable scaling laws. Here we will report on a study of the optimum method of preparation and maintenance of the PCF face and the near-to-far field intensity distribution of the propagating mode.
