Abstract
We report on the fabrication of photonic band gap fiber made of multicomponent glass. This fiber has a hexagonal lattice made of an array of 17 x 17 air capillaries with a lattice constant Λ=6.0 μm and air holes of diameter equal to d=5.7 μm. A hollow core is created by omitting seven central microcapillaries and have diameter of 16 μm. Characterization results show that the fiber can guide the light in the visible range with a central wavelength of 510 nm. The transmission properties for the presented PCFs are measured by using a broadband light source and an optical spectrum analyzer. In the paper we discuss also possible future modifications of the structures and their potential applications.
