We propose a novel air-guiding photonic bandgap fiber based on a square lattice cladding. The fiber presents a 20% wider bandgap than is achievable with a conventional triangular-lattice-based cladding and with the choice of a nine-cell core can be effectively single moded at all wavelengths within the bandgap.
