Abstract

Using a full-vector finite-element method, we calculate birefringence and dispersion in index-guiding photonic crystal fibers, also called holey fibers. Through real-model simulations the polarization-dependent dispersion in actual fiber structures is numerically demonstrated, for the first time to our knowledge. Furthermore the transverse-electric-field vector distributions in the fabricated holey fibers are also clarified for the two linearly polarized fundamental modes.
