Abstract

We report several small-core chalcogenide microstructured fibers fabricated by the “Stack & Draw” technique from Ge 15 Sb 20 S 65 glass with regular profiles. Mode field diameters and losses have been measured at 1.55 μm . For one of the presented fibers, the pitch is 2.5 μm , three times smaller than that already obtained in our previous work, and the corresponding mode field diameter is now as small as 3.5 μm . This fiber, obtained using a two step “Stack & Draw” technique, is single-mode at 1.55 μm from a practical point of view. We also report the first measurement of the attenuation between 1 and 3.5 μm of a chalcogenide microstructured fiber. Experimental data concerning fiber attenuation and mode field diameter are compared with calculations. Finally, the origin of fiber attenuation and the nonlinearity of the fibers are discussed.
