In this paper we consider an interaction between the air core modes (ACMs) of hollow core waveguide microstructures and core-cladding boundary walls in various shapes. The analysis is based on well-established models such as the ARROW (anti-resonant reflecting optical waveguide) model and on the models proposed for the first time. In particular, we consider the dynamics of light localization in the polygonal core cladding boundary wall as dependant on the type of its discrete rotational…

It is concluded that anti-resonance in the glass and air regions of the cladding is key to understanding the guidance mechanism.

Confinement loss of anti-resonant capillaries with curved boundaries.

It is found that both negative and positive curvatures substantially reduce the confinement loss relative to that of a circular anti-resonant capillary and that this effect is insensitive to the size of the core relative to the wavelength and to the properties of the glass capillary wall.

Numerical simulations use numerical simulations to investigate how the curvature of the fiber core boundary influences the attenuation of hollow antiresonant fibers and show the importance of a "negative" curvature core boundary in reducing confinement losses.

The results prove that with such a design the optical performances are strongly driven by the contour negative curvature of the core-cladding interface, including a modal content approaching true single-mode guidance.

Antiresonant reflection and inhibited coupling in hollow-core square lattice optical fibres.

A guidance mechanism in hollow-core optical fibres dominated by antiresonant reflection from struts of solid material in the cladding is proposed, and vector effects become important in determining the width of these bands through the non-degeneracy of the TE and TM polarised strut modes near cut-off.
