Abstract

Microstructured photonic bandgap fibers with a doped honeycomb cladding structure and the guiding defect defined by the absence of doping are proposed as nonlinear optical fibers for short wavelengths. It is shown that zero-dispersion wavelengths below 500 nm and corresponding effective areas of 1–2 μm2 can be obtained if structures with interhole distances near 600 nm can be fabricated. The cutoff wavelength for guidance of second-order modes can be controlled by variation of the radius and index contrast of the doped regions.
