Microbending losses are for the first time estimated in index-guiding photonic crystal fibres, and comparisons with standard step-index fibres are made. The results indicate that typical photonic crystal fibres are significantly less sensitive (one order of magnitude smaller loss) towards microbending than standard optical fibres.
