We performed intensive simulation work to find out key parameters which have a great influence on crosstalk in multi-core fibers. The design of core pitch, core/trench profile were optimized simultaneously to achieve optical properties suitable for the future large capacity transmission with low crosstalk less than −45dB after 100km and large effective areas larger than 130μm2.
