Numerical analysis of PC optical fibers
Figure 1: The effective index calculation of the perfect crystal structure consisting high index material with an air holes arranged in the hexagonal lattice (the structure is very (infinitely) long in z-direction). The photonic fiber is usually made by introducing a simple point defect (missing hole) in this perfect crystal structure. A calculated effective index is actually cladding index for this optical fiber (photonic crystal fiber).
Figure 2: Here is the same as in the Figure 1, but here we have a frequency dependence instead of relative wavelength.
Figure 3: The fundamental mode of the photonic crystal optical fiber, the z component of Poynting vector is plotted.
