Abstract

We report fabrication of a novel microstructured optical fiber made of biodegradable and water soluble materials that features ∼1dB/cm transmission loss. Two cellulose butyrate tubes separated with hydroxypropyl cellulose powder were codrawn into a porous double-core fiber offering integration of optical, microfluidic, and potentially drug release functionalities.
