Bending Losses in all Solid 2D Photonic Band-Gap Fibers: A limiting Factor?

Abstract

Bending losses are investigated experimentally and numerically in a solid-core bandgap fiber with parabolic refractive index inclusions. Previous record of 20 dB/km is reduced to 6 dB/km by increasing the fiber bend radius.
