Paper Abstract

A new type of dispersion flattened photonic fiber is presented. The fiber has an improved threefold symmetry core that consists of a silica core surrounded by three low-index regions and three air-holes. It can be observed from numerical simulation employing the full-vectorial finite difference frequency domain method that nearly-zero ultra-flattened dispersion can be obtained over the wavelength range of 1250-1700 nm. All fiber's parameters are found to be non-immune to imperfections of geometry. An attention should though be paid to the potential fabrication process. The chromatic dispersion behavior with fabrication tolerances of 1 % and 2 % has been numerically demonstrated. Finally, fiber designs with five different hole-to-hole spacing (pitch) have been proposed. Each of the proposed fibers exhibits remarkable chromatic dispersion properties, such as nearly-zero ultra-flattened dispersion over wide wavelength range or zero dispersion at the wavelength of 1550 nm.
