Group velocity dispersion (GVD) and effective mode area (Aeff) of solid core honeycomb cladding photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with different up/down doping levels are investigated theoretically. Both total internal reflection (TIR) and photonic bandgap (PBG) guiding mechanisms are shown to be available in this fiber structure with gradual change of the doping level. It is noted that the previously overlooked TIR guiding design with up-doping could acquire improved nonlinear property compared with PBG mechanism in short normalized wavelength region. On the other hand, the total GVD is shown to be dominated by waveguide dispersion corresponding to the fiber structure. Numerical results show that HPCF can achieve small Aeff with low air-fill fraction, and doping level in HPCF provides an additional way to change GVD excepting structure parameters. Special cases are given to demonstrate the potential of HPCF in combining design of Aeff and GVD, aiming at applications such as Raman amplification and dispersion compensation around 1550nm.
