Paper Abstract

A finite element-based, rigorous full-vectorial modal solution approach has been developed to calculate the effective index of the fundamental space filling mode, the cut-off condition of the fundamental and the second guided modes to identify single mode operation ranges for a photonic crystal fiber design. Furthermore, structural asymmetry has been introduced in the model to maximise the modal birefringence to create a design for polarization maintaining photonic crystal fiber.
