Impact of interstitial air holes on a wide-bandwidth rejection filter made from a photonic crystal fiber.


We have investigated the spectral properties of a band rejection filter made with a long-period fiber grating written in photonic crystal fiber that has interstitial air holes. Experiments showed that only one mode was coupled strongly to the fundamental core mode over a 600 nm spectral range. The central wavelength of the filter could be tuned over that… (More)
