Abstract

We present a novel structure for holey fibers (HFs) with endlessly single-polarization single-mode characteristics, which is realized by introducing four elliptical airholes arranged in a hexagonal matrix in the core region. The validation of the design is done by use of a full-vectorial finite element method. We exhibit one typical design that can deliver a single-polarization single-mode region of more than 2400 nm with a confinement loss level lower than 0.01dB/km. We have also shown that the persevered polarization state possesses a wide wavelength band of flat dispersion behavior. As a consequence, such HFs are useful in high-speed communication systems or optical-fiber sensors since they are free of polarization mode dispersion and simultaneously immune to cross-talk effect.
