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.
