Abstract

We report output characteristics of a connectorized hollow core photonics crystal fiber when it is subjected to coiling down to a 50 mm radius, bending, and torsion. We achieved coupling efficiency up to 73% with an output average power of 2 W and 24 nJ pulse energy. With optimized coupling, depolarization was as low as 7%. Coiling and bending of the photonic crystal patchcord introduces little distortion; torsion, however, changes the polarization drastically. To our knowledge, this is the first report on dynamic fiber delivery of fs pulses.

Fig. 3
Fig. 3 The setup for the fiber bending experiments with three bending planes: in plane (left), at 45° (middle), and at 90° (right) with respect to the input and output plane. The bending radius was varied from 150 mm to 50 mm.
Fig. 4
Fig. 4 Depolarization as a function of bending radius, bending plane and direction (CW: clockwise, CCW: counter clockwise). Depolarization varies few percent when fiber is bent in clockwise and counterclockwise direction, and in addition, in or out of plane, for radius change from 150 mm down to 50 mm.
