Paper Abstract

This letter deals with the guidance mechanism in Photonic Crystal Fibers. Setting the band condition in a microstructure is described. The Mode Profile dependent on the band condition is presented. Cross-section patterns presenting the propagation of elecrtomagnetic field are shown. The comparison of a guidance mechanism in various types of PCF's is discussed. Cross-sections shots of Photonic Crystal Fibers set to suitable input parameters are presented, value of losses, normalized frequency of second mode cut-off are calculated. The choice of input parameters such as lattice constant or Refractive Index profile is discussed. Simulations of Single Mode propagation in a wide operating range are done.
