Kejalakshmy, N., Rahman, B. M., Agrawal, A. , Tanvir, H. M. & Grattan, K. T. V. (2009). Metal-Coated Defect-Core Photonic Crystal Fiber for THz Propagation. IEEE/OSA Journal of Lightwave Technology, 27(11), pp. 1631-1637. doi: 10.1109/jlt.2009.2020919


Modal solutions for metal-coated defect-core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with a central air-hole have been obtained by using a full-vectorial finite element method to model the guidance of THz waves. It has been shown that the surface plasmon modes can couple with the defect-core PCF mode to form supermodes, with potential for sensing applications.
