Abstract

We report on the fabrication and characterization of solid-core all-polymer Bragg fibers consisting of a large-diameter polymethyl methylacrylate (PMMA) core surrounded by 50 alternating PMMA/Polystyrene (PS) polymer layers. By modifying the reflector layer thickness we illustrate that bandgap position can be adjusted at will in the visible. Moreover, such fibers are intensely colored in both the transmission and the outside reflection modes. Potential applications of such fibers are discussed.
