Abstract

We analyze the guiding problem in a realistic photonic crystal fiber, using a novel full-vector modal technique. This is a biorthogonal modal method based on the non-self-adjoint character of the electromagnetic propagation in a fiber. Dispersion curves of guided modes for different fiber structural paremeters are calculated, along with the two-dimensional transverse intensity distribution of the fundamental mode. Our results match those achieved in recent experiments in which the feasibility of this type of fiber was shown.
