Paper Abstract

We developed algorithms and full-vector mode solver as a tool for new optical components design that allows simulation of components with anisotropic optical characteristics. Algorithms are developed without assumption of weak guidance, which allows applications of the method and software in simulation of components with strong optical anisotropy. Method and software were tested by comparison with semi-analytical solutions for isotropic and anisotropic fibers. We observed reasonably good agreement (up to five non-zero digits in the effective indices) between calculated and analytical data for several low order modes. In this paper we present results of calculations for single polarization D-shaped and cylindrical fibers with anisotropic coating.
