Abstract

Two types of high birefringence photonic crystal fiber (PCF) which import four or six big circular air holes near the elliptical-hole are proposed. Their birefringent and dispersive properties are analyzed by full-vector finite-element method (FEM). Numerical analysis demonstrates that importing the big circular hole near the center of elliptical-hole PCFs can achieve a high birefringence. When the ratio (d/Λ) of diameter to hole spacing is larger than 0.8, the proposed two types of PCF have a larger birefringence than that of sole elliptical air hole ones. When the ratio d/Λ is equal to 0.95, the birefringences of these two types PCF can be as high as 4.27×103 and 5.09×103 at the wavelength of 1.55μm, respectively. Besides, PCF with the four big circular air holes has a large negative dispersion at the long wavelength in x-polarized mode, which indicates a potential in single-polarized mode dispersion compensation.
