Wadsworth, W. J., Percival, R. M., Bouwmans, G., Knight, J. C., Birks, T. A., Hedley, T. D. and Russell, P. S., 2004. Very high numerical aperture fibers. IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, 16 (3), pp. 843-845.
Air-silica microstructured fibers are designed and fabricated to yield numerical aperture (NA) greater than 0.9. A model is presented which accurately predicts the structural parameters required in order to realize high NAs. Such fibers have application in lasers and laser-induced-fluorescence systems.
