We demonstrate methane sensing based on Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy using a hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber guiding in the mid-infrared and idler pulses from a femtosecond optical parametric oscillator. Transmission measurements are presented for several fibers, and sensing is demonstrated using a fiber whose bandgap overlaps the methane(More)
We demonstrate methane sensing using a photonic bandgap fiber-based gas cell and broadband idler pulses from a periodically-poled lithium niobate femtosecond optical parametric oscillator. The hollow core of the fiber was filled with a methane:nitrogen mixture, and Fourier transform spectroscopy was used to measure transmission spectra in the 3.15-3.35 mum(More)
A three-core tellurite glass fiber having different combinations of rare earth oxide dopants in each core has been fabricated using shaped die-extrusion. Three cores, doped with Ho(3+)-Tm(3+)-Yb(3+), Er(3+)-Ce(3+), and Tm(3+)-Yb(3+) respectively, exhibited visible upconversion (blue, green and red) and infrared emissions at 1.4 microm, 1.5 microm, 1.9(More)
