ABSTRACT
Theoretical calculations and experimental results are reported for a microstructured polymer optical fiber twin-core coupler. Beat lengths are calculated using a fully vectorial, Fourier decomposition method, which show that the beat length is extremely sensitive to any core asymmetry. Reasonably good agreement between theory and experiment is obtained. © 2004 American Institute of Physics.

    We develop a method for the fabrication of functional microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) by selectively filling the air holes with liquid phase materials, where we utilize the dependence of filling speed on the size of the air holes. As a demonstration, we construct a hybrid MOF by filling...
