We numerically analyzed the polarization effects in birefringent all-solid photonic bandgap fiber with different index contrast between matrix and circular inclusions. The birefringence in the analyzed fibers is induced by elliptical shape of the core composed of double defect in the hexagonal lattice of high index inclusions. Our simulations were fully vectorial and based on a plane wave method and finite element method. We determined location of photonic bandgaps, spectral dependence of phase and group modal birefringence, and confinement loss characteristics for different polarization modes in three analyzed structures.
