Abstract

We report the fabrication, characterization and modeling of a solid-core photonic bandgap fiber with interstitial air holes between the cladding rods. The presence of these interstitial air holes leads to a great improvement of optical properties for this kind of fiber. Particularly, we demonstrate that confinement losses and bend sensitivity are substantially reduced. Our experimental results for this new solution are well supported by numerical results.
