Abstract

In this work we propose a new design of photonic crystal fiber with a side channel in the cladding region. The advantage of this fiber design is to provide easy access to the fiber core for applications requiring real-time measurement and longer interactions with light, such as microfluidic devices and solution-based optical sensors.
