Abstract
We propose a new hollow-core fiber that employs a rib-waveguide geometry for improved gas or liquid sensing. This waveguide supports a true guided mode that is connected laterally to the external environment through a hollow slab. Such designs eliminate the requirement of small transverse holes and open up new opportunities for sensing.
