Abstract
We numerically analyze and compare the mode and dispersion properties of three different microstructured optical fibers with the same square array of different-shaped air holes: rhombic, square, and circular. We use a full vectorial finite-difference method. The analysis shows that the properties of microstructured optical fibers depend on the hole area, hole shape, and wavelength to different extents. The effects of air hole shapes on the properties of microstructured optical fibers can be treated as the perturbations for sufficiently small air filling factors. For larger air filling factors the properties of microstructured optical fibers are clearly affected by the air hole shape. This dependence is useful for understanding the properties of microstructured optical fibers.
