Paper Abstract

A type of high-birefringent terahertz (THz) photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with all circle air holes is proposed. The characteristics including birefringence, dispersion, and confinement loss are numerically analyzed in detail by using the finite element methods. Simulation results show that the proposed THz PCFs exhibit high birefringence on the level of 10−2 in the frequency range of 2 to 4 THz, which is realized by the minor position adjustment of air holes in the first ring of the cladding. We believe that the proposed THz PCFs can be fabricated without complications due to their simple structure. In addition, two porous-core THz PCFs are proposed and the birefringence property is investigated.
