Hollow core fibers (HCF) are innovative optical fibers having the potential to break the limits of conventional optical fibers. Examples of innovation are ultralow loss potential, ultra-low nonlinearity, and long interaction lengths with gases confined to the core. In addition, ultra-low latency characteristics have attracted much attention in recent years, particularly amongst financial trading communication systems. For the first time in the world, we have succeeded in developing a high-performance HCF with practical single mode (SM) properties achieved by a resonant couple phenomenon, to implement the HCF in the low latency transmission. Furthermore, we have successfully developed HCF connectors and HCF cables to achieve the actual low latency transmission. These development results are reported.
