Air-guiding photonic bandgag (PBG) fibers are new kind fibers which are quite different from conventional correspondence ones. In this paper, we studied the light transmission properties and light wave modes of hexagonal air-guiding PBG fibers. The fiber core is 10μm diameter air hole, surrounded by a cladding of 71.5μm diameter. The outer-cladding of the fiber is about 185μm. The experimental results show that when the wavelength ranges from 1430 to 1600 nm, there is merely no attenuation. It means that in these new fibers, light wavelength ranges widely. In addition, light wave mode and fiber core are the same in symmetrical structure. The theoretical results coincide with experimental results exactly.
