Abstract

We study the cladding modes of photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) using a fully vectorial method. This approach enables us to analyze the modes and incorporate material dispersion in a straightforward fashion. We find the field flow lines, intensity distribution and polarization properties of these modes. The effective cladding indices of different PCFs are investigated in detail.
