Abstract
We study the modal birefringence behaviour of a near-elliptic core index-guiding photonic crystal fiber (PCF) intended for high birefringence applications. The analysis is based on a semi-vectorial field convergence algorithm combined with the perturbation correction technique of mode calculation. The approach is accurate, simple to implement, and much faster than any of the existing methods. The efficacy of our design analysis has been verified by comparing the results with otherwise known solutions. Using this analysis as a design recipe, we have realized PCF of reasonably high birefringence characteristics.
