The leakage losses of a bent equiangular spiral photonic crystal fiber (ES-PCF) have been analyzed in this paper by employing a full-vectorial finite element method. The analysis shows that the confinement and bending losses of ES-PCF are several orders of magnitude less than that of the conventional hexagonal lattice PCF (H-PCF) with similar dimensions. Also, the bending loss increases less rapidly in ES-PCF than in H-PCF for similar bending radii. It has also been found that no mode degeneration between fundamental core mode and first cladding mode occurs in ES-PCF. The reason of higher field confinement in ES-PCF than its hexagonal counterpart is also discussed.
