Abstract
In order to solve for the mode intensity distributions in a photonic crystal fiber (PCF) cross section and the propagation constant for the design of fiber bandpass filters, we numerically analyze the modal distributions of the fundamental core mode and different cladding modes. Based on the simulation results, we also experimentally demonstrate a simple fabrication of bandpass filters inscribed on the PCF by inserting a π-phase shift in a 12-period long-period grating (LPG). Two rejection bands with greater than 18 dB isolation and an ultra-wide band of 85.3 nm are achieved. The phase-shifted PCF-LPGs are fabricated using a CO2 laser with point-by-point focused pulses. The proposed fiber bandpass filter is compact and is not influenced by temperature effects.
