Title
(EN) PHOTONIC CRYSTAL FIBERS HAVING A PREFERRED BENDING PLANE AND SYSTEMS THAT USE SUCH FIBERS
(FR) FIBRES A CRISTAUX PHOTONIQUES AYANT UN PLAN DE COURBURE PREFERE ET SYSTEMES UTILISANT DE TELLES FIBRES
Abstract
(EN)
In general, in a first aspect, the invention features photonic crystal fibers that include a core (120) extending along a waveguide axis, a confinement region (110) extending along the waveguide axis (199) surrounding the core, and a cladding (160) extending along the waveguide axis surrounding the confinement region, wherein the cladding has an asymmetric cross-section.
(FR)
En général, selon un premier aspect, l'invention concerne des fibres à cristaux photoniques qui comprennent une âme (120) s’étendant le long d'un axe guide d'ondes, une région de confinement (110) s’étendant le long de l'axe guide d'ondes (199) entourant l’âme et une gaine (160) s’étendant le long de l'axe guide d'ondes entourant la région de confinement, la gaine ayant une section transversale asymétrique.
