The well-controlled guided modes and long path-lengths offered by both solid and hollow core photonic crystal fibres (PCFs) permit remarkable enhancements (and in some cases reductions) in many kinds of light-matter interaction. Recent examples include: Ultrafast spectrally bright deep and vacuum UV sources based on gas-filled hollow core PCF (pressure-tunable dispersion is a unique feature); generation of stable bright deep UV supercontinuum light in PCF drawn from the fluorozirconate glass ZBLAN; OAM-birefringent helically twisted PCF that preserves the sign of orbital angular momentum; and light-driven optoacoustic devices that permit stable high harmonic mode-locking of fiber ring lasers at GHz repetition rates.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for 2018 presentations, with transcripts for prior recordings added daily.
