Abstract

A novel photonic crystal fiber featured by concentric cores is proposed to induce dispersion controllability by photosensitivity. Chromatic dispersion can be changed from 1827 to 72 ps nm km with refractive index modulation of 4 × 10 4 produced in Ge-doped regions in the fiber. Effective mode area of inner mode is as small as 6.4 μ m 2 . The proposed fiber enables to achieve quasi-phase-matched nonlinear parametric interaction in a single piece of photonic crystal fiber, by periodically alternating dispersion and compensating for phase mismatching caused by the dispersion.
