Paper Abstract

A construction of the polarizing holey fiber was optimized in order to assure maximum single polarization bandwidth. We demonstrated that the polarization bandwidth of the holey fiber can be increased up to 480 nanometers by properly choosing the fiber constructional parameters. A single-polarization operation in the analyzed structure was achieved by introducing a pair of air holes adjacent to the fiber core and having diameters greater than the cladding holes. Similarly to traditional polarizing fibers, the operation principle of the analyzed holey fiber is related to the difference in cut-off wavelengths of the two orthogonally polarized fundamental modes.
