Paper Abstract

A novel design of Yb-doped double-cladding hybrid photonic crystal fibers, with three rows of high-index inclusions on each side of the core, has been numerically analyzed with a full-vector modal solver based on the finite element method. Simulation results have demonstrated that a stronger filtering effect and a higher bending tolerance can be obtained with an increased number of high-index resonators. Moreover, the unique bending properties of hybrid fibers with anti-symmetric design have been investigated and explained through the comparison with the ones of hybrid symmetric fibers, with high-index inclusions of the same dimension on both sides of the core.
