Abstract

We have fabricated a bandgap-guiding hollow-core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) capable of transmitting and compressing ultrashort pulses in the green spectral region around 532 nm . When propagating subpicosecond pulses through 1 m of this fiber, we have observed soliton-effect temporal compression by up to a factor of 3 to around 100 fs . This reduces the wavelength at which soliton effects have been observed in hollow-core PCF by over 200 nm . We have used the pulses delivered at the output of the fiber to machine micrometer-scale features in copper.
