Abstract (40-Word Limit): We show numerically that photonic crystal fibre (PCF) can control the mode number over a wide wavelength range while realizing a large effective area and a low bending loss. We also fabricated a PCF and realized a large effective area with 2-mode operation over the S-L band experimentally.
