Paper Abstract

Group velocity dispersion (GVD) and effective mode area (Aeff) of solid core honeycomb cladding photonic crystal fiber (HPCF) with different doping levels are investigated theoretically. Both total internal reflection and photonic bandgap guiding mechanisms are shown to be available in this fiber structure with the changes of doping levels. GVD is shown to be dominated by the large waveguide dispersion corresponding to the fiber structure. Numerical results show that HPCF can achieve small Aeff with low air-filling fraction. One special case is given to demonstrate the potential of HPCF in dispersion compensation.
