Abstract

We report the fabrication and characterization of a new type all-solid photonic bandgap fiber. By introducing an index depressed layer around the high-index rod in the unit cell of photonic crystal cladding, transmission loss as low as 2 dB km within the first bandgap is realized for the all-solid photonic bandgap fiber with a bandwidth of over 700 nm . The bend loss experiment shows that the photonic bandgap fiber is much less bend sensitive than single-mode fiber.
