Paper Abstract

Tapered photonic crystal fibers (PCFs), similar to tapered conventional fibers, can be either adiabatic of nonadiabatic. Here, we examine the adiabaticity of the PCF taper and obtain three-dimensional plots showing the evolution of power flow inside the tapered PCF. Also, we analyze different taper shapes, such as the linear taper, raised-cosine taper, and the modified exponential taper. Other factors, such as the taper length and the number of air hole rings are also investigated.
