The development of theoretical and experimental method for the characterization of Polarization Maintaining Photonic Crystal Fiber (PM PCF) from far filed intensity measurements has been reported. To maintain the polarization in PCF different air hole diameter along orthogonal axes adjacent to the core region has been introduced. This helps in creating an effective index difference between the two orthogonal polarization modes. It is shown that air hole spacing (Λ), air hole diameter (d) and effective cladding index differences of PM-PCF can also be obtained from its far field measurements.
