Abstract

We propose the realization of single-polarization operation in highly birefringent photonic crystal fibers. The suppression of one of the polarization states is realized by introducing index-matched cladding defect waveguides. The leakage loss of the index-matched polarization state can be enhanced by nearly 4 orders of magnitude. In particular, polarization-dependent loss larger than 2.97 dB m with transmission loss lower than 0.03 dB m in a wavelength region ranging from 1.54 to 1.566 μ m can be realized in one such fiber.
