Abstract

The state of the art of silicon optical fibers fabricated via the high pressure chemical deposition technique will be reviewed. The optical transmission properties of step index silicon optical fibers will be presented, including investigations of the nonlinearities that can be used for all-optical signal processing. In addition, alternative complex fiber geometries that permit sophisticated control of the propagating light will be introduced.
