Abstract

We propose a new photonic crystal fiber design with a W-shaped effective index profile to achieve the largest effective area $(A_{\rm eff})$ for telecommunication use. We realized a 220-$\mu$m$^{2} \ A_{\rm eff}$ while achieving both a cable cutoff wavelength of less than 1300 nm and a bending loss compatible with ITU-T recommendations G.655 and G. 656.
