Paper Abstract

The results of numerical modeling and experimental investigations of manufactured diamond-shaped and large area hollow core photonic crystal fibers with periodical cladding (kagome-lattice and closely packed tubes) are presented. The use of soft glasses allows to fabricate high-quality structures with moderate losses. Numerical methods, designing strategies and fabrication issues of these promising fiber structures are discussed.
