Abstract:The invention of optical fiber in the 20th century has not only revolutionized the way people communicate but also brought about significant changes inoptical sensing, laser and many emerging research fields. However, in the 21st century, with the dramatic increase of the global internet traffic, there’s a general fear of a possible “capacity crunch” in the near future, which is grounded inthe intrinsic material imperfection of silica optical fiber, i.e. Rayleigh scattering loss (RSL), chromatic dispersion, and Kerr nonlinearity.In other research fields, the pursuitfor higher laser power, higher sensitivity of specific physical quantitiesand many new requirements in biophotonics, quantum optics, etc. alsocalls for a revolution in the optical fiber itself. Hollow-core fiber (HCF),allowing light to travel in a quasi-vacuum optical environment with unique merits oflow nonlinearity,low dispersion,low latencyand potentially low loss, pointsout apromising avenue for solving the upcoming key problemsin these areas. Theinvestigation on the ultimate limit of HCF has become a hot research topic withintense attention worldwide. In this talk, we review our recent progress towards a “perfect hollow core fiber”, including our unique understanding of the guidance mechanism of anti-resonant type HCF, the novel design and fabrication of several HCF structures, and several applications in lasers, sensing and potentially optical communications. In particular, our newly fabricated conjoined-tube HCF exhibits an ultralow loss of 2 dB/km at 1512 nm and a < 16 dB/km bandwidth of 335 nm, beating all of the existing types of HCF. It could be a potential rival to the silica optical fiber in the future for solving the communication “capacity crunch” issue.
