Abstract
A new type of microstructured optical fiber, with a transverse slot running along its length, has been fabricated from polymethylmethacrylate. The slot exposes the fiber core over long lengths, allowing for materials to be directly introduced into the vicinity of the evanescent waves of the core modes. The use of this fiber as an evanescent wave chemical sensor has been demonstrated.
