A fractal-based fibre for ultra-high throughput optical probes

Huntington, Shane T; Gibson, Brant Cameron; Canning, J; Digweed-Lyytikainen, K; Love, John; Steblina, V


A core component of all scanning near-field optical microscopy (SNOM) systems is the optical probe, which has evolved greatly but still represents the limiting component for the system. Here, we introduce a new type of optical probe, based on a Fractal Fibre which is a special class of photonic crystal fibre (PCF), to directly address the issue of increasing the optical throughput in SNOM probes. Optical measurements through the Fractal Fibre probes have shown superior power levels to...[Show more]
