Abstract

We infiltrate a perdeuterated liquid crystal with a reduced infrared absorption in a photonic crystal fiber. The H atoms of this liquid crystal were substituted with D atoms in order to move the vibration bands which cause absorption loss to longer wavelengths and therefore reduce the absorption in the spectral range of 1–2 μm. We achieve in the middle of the near-infrared transmission bandgap the lowest loss (about 1 dB) ever reported for this kind of devices.
