A medical laser delivery system transmits laser energy to a surgical site of a patient, however 30% of the energy will be lost during the transmission. Our new design provides a solution to the problem. Firstly, it maximizes the bandwidth by using high-refractive-index matrix to compensate the material dispersion permitting high input energy by broad-band wave transmission. Secondly, it decreases the loss by using periodic microstructures within photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) as well as alternating layers (n1/n2) of dielectrics deposited on a metal film inside the hollow core.
