An ultra-wideband single-mode single-polarization photonic crystal fiber design is proposed. Simulations indicate it has a 1540 nm SMSP range with the confinement loss being < 0.25 dB/km and an effective area of 2.2 μm<sup>2</sup>. Meanwhile, the flat, near-zero group velocity dispersion can also be achieved at ~800 nm.
