Paper Abstract

Modal solutions for photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) with circular air holes in a hexagonal matrix are presented, by using a rigorous full-vectorial finite element-based approach. The effective indices, mode field profiles, spot-sizes, modal hybridness, modal birefringence and group velocity dispersion values have been determined for a range of PCFs and the results are shown and conclusions drawn.
