A novel design of single polarization single mode (SPSM) photonic nanowire is proposed. Using a cladding structure with circular air holes, a new design of a photonic nanowire with ultra-wideband range of 740 nm for SPSM operation is obtained. The numerical results show that the SPSM-nanowire is low-loss within the wavelengths ranging from 1.17 μm to 1.91 μm, the confinement loss of the slow-axis mode is less than 0.15 dB/km and the fast-axis mode is unguided. This fiber has greater advantages in polarization sensitive applications, such as fiber optic gyroscopes, fiber optic current sensors, high-power fiber lasers, and coherent optical communications.
