# Project Title

Hollow core gas fill times calculator.

## Description

This python calcualtor is based on the paper Analytical modeling of the gas-filling dynamics in photonic crystal fibers, I Dicaire et al, Applied Optics, Vol 49, No 24 (2010)

This calcualtor allows for the simple calcualtion of the approximate gas fill time of hollow core fibre based on fibre and gas variables.

### Instructions

19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26
Run: GasFill_GUI.py  
Entre the values you wish to test and click calculate to get an accurate fill time.  
Core Diameter: This is the diameter of the fibre that will be filled with air.  
Fibre length: Length of the fibre to be filled with gas.  
Temperature: Temperature of the fiber and gas under test.  
Molecular weight: In mixed gasses this is the average molecular weight of the gas in air this is ~28.97 g/mol.  
Molecular diameter: In mixed gasses this is the average kinetic diameter of the gas molcucules. In air this is 359.99 pm.
