Paper Abstract

We propose a kind of novel super-lattice photonic crystal fibers (SL-PCFs) with uniform air holes formed basic cell structure, which can achieve high birefringence or large negative dispersion. Using the uniform air holes in the PCF has the advantage of minimizing the structural distortion during fabrication while forming a complex-structure cross-section. An effectively-elliptical-hole SL-PCF with high birefringence is proposed and investigated, which has the similar birefringence and confinement loss properties as the previously reported elliptical-hole PCF. We also propose a large negative dispersion SL-PCF, which has a huge potential for the application of dispersion compensation in the optical fiber communication system.
