Abstract

We investigated theoretically chiral negatively refractive fibers that guide transverse electromagnetic modes. In this Letter, novel properties of such fibers are presented, including arbitrariness of modal field and arbitrarily scalable core radius. Based on these novel properties, we conceptually propose a new type of space-division multiplexing that uses different spatial positions of the core of such fascinating fibers as different data paths.
