Abstract

In this paper, a thorough numerical analysis of the confinement loss in kagome and tube lattice fibers is presented. The results show that the confinement loss strongly depends on the shape of the struts composing the core boundary and the cladding. This explains why confinement loss in kagome fibers is much higher than in tube lattice ones. In fact, the closer to a perfectly circular arc the struts, the lower the confinement loss. For this reason, struts shape must be carefully controlled during the fabrication process.
