Photonic crystal fibers and applications in sensing
Author(s): Brian J. Mangan

Paper Abstract

Photonic crystal fibers are pure silica optical fibers with an array of air holes that run along the length of the fiber. The development of these fibers, in both solid and hollow core varieties, has been significant over the past 15 years and they are increasingly finding new applications in a variety of sensing areas where they can offer opportunities distinct from conventional optical fibers.
