Abstract

We propose a novel design of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) using an elliptical air hole in the core as a defected core in order to enhance the performance of modal birefringence and to control the properties of chromatic dispersion at the same time. From the simulation results, it is shown that the proposed fiber has high birefringence up to the order of 10−2, negative flattened chromatic dispersion in a broad range of wavelengths, and low confinement loss less than that of the single mode fiber. The outstanding advantage of the proposed PCF is that high birefringence, negative flattened dispersion, and low confinement loss can be achieved just by adding a small sized elliptical air hole in the core to the elliptical air hole PCF, especially at the same time.
