Abstract

A particular photonic crystal fiber (PCF) designed with all circle air holes is proposed. Its characteristics are studied by full-vector finite element method (FEM) with anisotropic perfectly matched layer (PML). The simulation results indicated that the proposed PCF can realize high birefringence (up to 10-2), high nonlinearity (50W-1•km-1 and 68W-1•km-1 in X and Y polarizations respectively) and low confinement loss (less than 10-3dB/km at 1.55um wavelength).
