We describe a hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber designed for use in the 850 nm wavelength region. The fiber has a minimum attenuation of 180dB/km at 847nm wavelength. The low-loss mode has a quasi-Gaussian intensity profile. The group-velocity dispersion of this mode passes through zero around 830nm, and is anomalous for longer wavelengths. The polarization beat length varies from 4 mm to 13 mm across the band gap. We expect this fiber to be useful for delivery of high-energy ultrashort optical pulses.
