A novel silica index guiding holey fiber (IGHF) design is proposed utilizing a new defect structure that is composed of an elliptic high index ring structure and an elliptic air-hole at the center with triangular lattice structure. The proposed IGHF showed unique modal properties such as uniform and high birefringence over a wide spectral range and single polarization single mode (SPSM) guidance along with a flat negative chromatic dispersion. Optical waveguide properties were numerically analyzed using the plane wave expansion method in terms of mode intensity distribution, modal birefringence, chromatic dispersion for the new defect structural parameters.
