Abstract

Dispersion of the fundamental confined modes in hollow-core all-silica Bragg fibers with nanosupports is analyzed. The transfer-matrix formalism is applied. Anomalies in the group-velocity dispersion are evidenced at long wavelengths, toward the upper limit of the bandgap. The results confirm that, as in microstructured photonic crystal fibers, this anomalous dispersion is due to prevention of the confined hollow-core modes from crossing the surface modes, the avoided crossings are more apparent in the variation of group velocity with wavelength. The dependence of these avoided crossings on the hollow-core radius and the layer thicknesses is briefly analyzed.
