IR transmissive As-S glass and As-Se glass triangular photonic band gap fiber structures are theoretically modeled. The potential for propagation of air-guided modes in the defect regions of these fibers is demonstrated by the large out of plane two-dimensional photonic band gaps found in these structures. Fiber design for IR light propagation is discussed.
