Paper Abstract

In this paper we employ the full-vector finite-difference frequency-domain (FDFD) method to theoretically investigate the birefringent characteristics of three kinds of selectively liquid-filled photonic crystal fibers (PCFs). These birefringent PCFs are fabricated by asymmetrically infiltrating high-index liquids into the air holes of the PCFs. The birefringence values and the confinement losses of these birefringent selectively liquid-filled PCFs are compared and discussed. We also demonstrate the fabrication of the birefringent selectively liquid-filled PCFs, and the birefringence values can be successfully measured by using an optical fiber Sagnac interferometer.
