Abstract

This chapter presents fundamental concepts of twisted clad optical guides, and the recent research results obtained in respect of the electromagnetic behaviour of such complex structured optical mediums. In this stream, various forms of guides have been touched upon considering different kinds of cross-sectional shapes and materials in use. These guides are essentially embedded with conducting sheath helix structures. Emphasis has been given on the power confinement characteristics of these guides. The use of twisted structures allows control over the dispersion behavior. As such, the reason of amalgamating the aforementioned complexities, in conjunction with conventional optical guide, remains in light of their natural properties in tailoring the dispersion as well as power sustainment characteristics. All the relevant formulations have been tackled taking into account the respective wave propagation system as specific boundary-value problem, which essentially needs the implementation of suitable boundary conditions exploiting Maxwell's equations. The effects of introducing perfectly conducting sheath helix structures have been the primary focus of this chapter.
