Photonics crystal fiber HN-PCF

Recently, a new fiber type of fibers, so-called microstructured or photonic crystal fibers appeared. In this type of fibers there are holes or inclusions of a material with different refractive index in the core and/or in the cladding. New dispersion and nonlinear properties can be observed in such fibers. Most of specific applications of microstructured fibers require own specific structure of the fiber.

The HN-PCF series is specially designed for supercontinuum generation using most popular pump sources – Ti-Sa femtosecond laser and Yb-doped fiber ps or fs lasers.
