A fiber design that allows the characterization of high and low refractive index materials is proposed and demonstrated. This fiber consists of an air-silica photonic crystal fiber supporting a Gaussian like mode confined in the fiber core and a ring mode in a region between the structured area and the fiber cladding. This versatile fiber design finds applications in the oil industry where materials of different refractive indices are found. The characterization of petroleum and CO2 using the new fiber is demonstrated. © 2012 SPIE.
