An air-core microstructured fiber design that supports a single-polarization, circularly symmetric nondegenerate mode is presented. The fiber design is modeled directly, and the microstructured cladding is analyzed by use of band diagrams to elucidate the mechanism through which polarization nondegeneracy is achieved.
