Paper Abstract

Full-vectorial finite element method based eigenmode solver and imaginary-distance beam propagation method are developed for analyzing modal leakage characteristics of microstructured fibers and photonic band gap fibers. In both schemes the curvilinear hybrid edge/nodal elements based on linear tangential and quadratic normal vector basis functions are adopted to accomplish the computational window divisions and perfectly matched layer (PML) is incorporated as the boundary condition to absorb waves out of the computational window. The two schemes give consistent results for the numerical examples considered and the validity and usefulness of this work are demonstrated. Comparison with published results is shown.
