Anti-resonant hollow core fibre


Optical signal in a hollow core anti-resonant fibre propagates in an air core surrounded by single ring of anti-resonant tube elements. Guidance is based on an anti-resonance from the thin glass membranes constituted by the non-touching tubes surrounding the hollow core. The extremely low overlap of guided power with the surrounding silica, less than 2×10-5, added to the mode effective area, confers to this fibre design record material non-linearity.
