Paper Abstract

Microstructured fibres (MOF), also called photonic crystal fibres (PCF), constitute a class of optical fibres, which has a large potential for number of novel applications either in the telecom or in the sensing domain. However, some of the applications require the use of specialty fibres with a doped core. We have made a preliminary exploration of MOF with doped regions and possibly inscribed Bragg gratings. The extensive study of the fibre cross-section structure in respect to possibilities of writing the Bragg gratings was our main concern.
