Solid-Core Photonic BandGap Fibers (SC-PBGF) belongs to the family of microstructured optical fibers whereby the cladding is made of high refractive index inclusions as compared to that of the fiber core. In such fibers, light is confined to the core by an anti-resonant mechanism and several high transmission windows separated by high loss regions compose the transmission spectrum. Guiding mechanism is then identical to the one observed in Hollow-Core PBGF (HC-PBGF) except that a solid core can be exploited. Such PBGFs have proven to be good candidates for single-mode high power delivery and for controlling the spectral extension of supercontinuum generation. Mixing different types of resonators in the cladding or mixing PBG with modifed-Total Internal Reection (m-TIR) mechanism also lead to original and more exible fiber designs. Recent developments in the design and realization of Large Mode Area (LMA) and Highly NonLinear (HNL) fibers are presented, including single-mode ring-structured Bragg _bers, LMA fibers exhibiting a fundamental mode with a flat-top profile, and hybrid fibers for supercontinuum generation or frequency conversion.
