Abstract

We present an investigation into the mechanism for guidance of microstructured optical fibers consisting of high-refractive-index cylinders embedded in a low-index background. A new guidance regime is identified in which the fibers’ confinement losses depend strongly on wavelength and the positions of the loss minima and maxima depend on the scattering properties of individual cylinders and only weakly on their position and number. We point out similarities between these results and those reported recently for two-dimensional antiresonant reflecting waveguides.
