Abstract: A half-filling technique was demonstrated to improve the bending properties of a fluid-filled photonic crystal fiber. Such a technique can realize to fill selectively a fluid into half of air holes in a PCF. The bending properties of the half-filled PCF are quite different from those of the fully-filled PCF. Distinct bending properties were observed when the half-filled PCF was bent toward different fiber orientations. Especially, the transmission spectrum of the half-filled PCF was hardly affected while the fiber was bent toward the filled-hole orientation.
