Hybrid active polymer/silica microstructured photonic crystal optical fibers

  • B. J. Eggleton (a1) and C. Kerbage (a2)

Abstract

We review several applications of microstructured photonic crystal optical fibers that incorporate active materials infused into the air-holes. The tunable optical characteristics of the materials combined with the unique structure of the fiber enable a number of functionalities including reconfigurability and tunability for various fiber device applications. We describe a brief characterization of the modes and discuss the experimental results of the fibers.
