Abstract
Due to their unique dispersion and nonlinear properties, chalcogenide suspended-core fibers, characterized by a few micrometer-sized core suspended between large air-holes by few small glass struts, are excellent candidates for mid-infrared applications. In the present study the influence of the main cross-section characteristics of the chalcogenide suspended-core fibers on the dispersion curve and on the position of the zero-dispersion wavelength has been thoroughly analyzed with a full-vector modal solver based on the finite element. In particular, the design of suspended-core fibers made of both As2S3 and As2Se3 has been optimized to obtain dispersion properties suitable for the supercontinuum generation in the mid-infrared.
