Abstract
In this paper the analyses of the linear and nonlinear light propagation in the photonic crystal fiber infiltrated with nematic liquid crystal is presented. Our theoretical investigations, carried out by using the finite difference beam propagation method, show the extreme importance of the discrete space representation aspect. The main aim of this work is to reveal that application of the triangular grid for the discretization of the analyzed structure of the photonic crystal fiber with the hexagonal symmetry gives more reasonable results than in the case of the standard square mesh utilization.
