Abstract
Using transformation optics formalism, we numerically analyzed the effect of resonant couplings between core and cladding modes in a helical core fiber with large core offset. Our study revealed much richer spectrum of resonant couplings than predicted by perturbative methods in fibers with small core offsets. Moreover, we demonstrated that the resonant couplings to lower order cladding modes predicted by perturbative methods are in fact prohibited for larger core offsets. Finally, we demonstrated the existence of spectrally broad polarization sensitive couplings to the cladding modes suggesting that helical core fibers with large core offsets may be used as broadband circular polarizers.
