Abstract

A simple all-solid tellurite microstructured optical fiber which has only one layer of high-index rods in the cladding is proposed and fabricated in the paper. The core and the cladding with the low index are made from the TeO2–ZnO–Na2O–La2O3 glass, and the high-index rods are made from the TeO2–Li2O–WO3–MoO3–Nb2O5 glass. The guiding regime in this fiber can be explained by ARROW model. The fiber can support the near- and mid-infrared light transmitting in the core within the transmission bands while the all-solid silica microstructured optical fiber cannot. When the pump light is outside the transmission bands, the light will transmit in six TLWMN rods.
