A scheme of quantum electrodynamic (QED) background-free radiative emission of a neutrino pair (RENP) is proposed in order to achieve precision determination of neutrino properties so far not accessible. The important point for the background rejection is the fact that the dispersion relation between the wave vector along the propagating direction in the wave guide (and in a photonic-crystal-type fiber) and the frequency is modified by a discretized non-vanishing effective mass. This effective mass acts as a cutoff of allowed frequencies, and one may select the RENP photon energy region free of all macro-coherently amplified QED processes by choosing the cutoff larger than the mass of neutrinos.
