Photonic crystal fiber, confinement loss, effective area


Fluorine doped silica tubes are used instead of air holes to reduce the problem associated with deformities during manufacturing of Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF). But when fluorine doped silica tubes are used the confinement loss of fiber will be greater than that of air holed one. In this paper, we propose a new structure for this type of modified PCF which gives very low confinement loss. Also, we analyze some of the optical properties of the proposed structure such as effective refractive index, effective area and compared it with the normal hexagonal PCF.
