Paper Abstract

In this paper we analyzed the influence of hydrostatic pressure on modal birefringence in photonic crystal holey fibers. We calculated the spectral dependence of modal birefringence B(λ) and its sensitivity to hydrostatic pressure dB(λ)/dp in the holy fiber with birefringence induced by the lack of hexagonal symmetry in the cladding. The contribution of geometrical effect related to deformation of the holey structure as well as the stress-related contribution to the overall pressure sensitivity were analyzed separately. Our results show that both factors decrease modal birefringence, which results in negative sign of pressure sensitivity. Furthermore, we show that the pressure sensitivity of the analyzed structure is of the same order as sensitivities of the commercially available highly birefringent fibers with stress applying elements like Panda or Bow-Tie.
