- Low-loss hollow-core fibers with improved single-modednessJohn M Fini
OFS Laboratories, 19 Schoolhouse Rd, Somerset, NJ 08873 USA
Opt Express 21:6233-42. 2013..Modeling indicates this measured loss can be improved. By breaking the connection between core size and single-modedness, this first PRISM demonstration opens a new path towards achieving the low-loss potential of HCFs...
- Crosstalk in multicore fibers with randomness: gradual drift vs. short-length variationsJohn M Fini
OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ 08873, USA
Opt Express 20:949-59. 2012..This insight implies a novel crosstalk suppression strategy: fast modulation of a bend perturbation by spinning the fiber can disrupt the bend-induced phase matching...
- Large-mode-area multicore fibers in the single-moded regimeJohn M Fini
OFS Laboratories, Somerset, NJ 08840, USA
Opt Express 19:4042-6. 2011..The performance tradeoff between bend loss, single-modedness, and mode area for these fibers is shown to be at best equivalent to step-index fiber...
- Large mode area fibers with asymmetric bend compensationJohn M Fini
OFS Laboratories, 19 Schoolhouse Rd, Somerset, New Jersey 08840, USA
Opt Express 19:21866-73. 2011..Here, we show that even imperfect fibers can achieve essentially complete HOM suppression for areas of 2000 square microns or larger. Ultimate performance limits due to finite cladding size and fabrication imperfections are calculated...
