2008 (English)In: IEEE Photonics Technology Letters, ISSN 1041-1135, E-ISSN 1941-0174, Vol. 20, no 1-4, 246-248 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Nanostructure photonic crystals with two-fold symmetry are introduced into a silica-based fiber core to induce high birefringence between the two nearly orthogonal fundamental modes. We theoretically study and provide our preliminary findings on the birefringence property of such fibers over a large wavelength range. A large-mode-area structure with a typical high birefringence in the order of 10(-1) is easily realized.
