Abstract

A novel highly flat elliptical-hole holey fiber with a squeezed lattice is introduced for achieving extremely high birefringence. The fiber consists of two kinds of elliptical holes with the same major axis length and different minor axis lengths for the core and cladding regions. Numerical results demonstrate a modal birefringence exceeding 0.065.
