Hollow-core microstructured fibers (HCF) has now become a versatile tool for applications ranging from low latency optical communication, ultra-intense pulse delivery, few-cycle pulse compression, UV and mid-IR light generation to biochemical sensing, quantum optics and mid-IR to Terahertz waveguides. These applications call for better performance HCF in terms of loss, bandwidth, mode quality, damage threshold, etc.

In this webinar hosted by the OSA Fiber Modeling and Fabrication Technical Group, Professor Yingying Wang of Beijing University of Technology will talk about the historical development, the recent advances and the future possibilities of HCF. She will show the improvement of HCF optical properties in the last 20 years and application requirements. In particular the emphasis on the reduction of transmission loss in HCF, which is one of the main target for optical fiber development, will be discussed.
