We present hybrid photonic crystal fibers that provide broadband single-polarization guidance based on two different propagation mechanisms, namely, total internal reflection and the photonic bandgap effect. Experimental results demonstrate polarization dependent loss as high as 26.7dB and the bandwidth of single-polarization behavior over 225nm.
