ABSTRACT
The article reports on the development of photonic-band-gap fiber (PBGF) with low loss and high bandwidth by researchers at Nanyang Technological University and Yangtze Optical Fiber and Cable Company Ltd. in Asia. The fiber has a loss on the order of 2dB/km, and has very low bend sensitivity. Moreover, the decreased loss and improved bend sensitivity of the fiber is attributed to an index-depressed layer around the high-index rods that comprise the fiber cladding.
