Abstract
An octagonal photonic crystal fiber (O-PCF) for numerical structure design and analysis of some particular properties are presented in this paper. The proposed design is suitable for residual dispersion compensation (RDC) with polarization maintaining (PM) applications as it offers extremely high-negative flattened average chromatic dispersion (DT) and absolute dispersion variation (ΔD) of around −(708±10)  ps nm1km1 and average high birefringence (B) of the order 102 for the wavelength limits of 1.46 to 1.67  μm (bandwidth of 210 nm that covers S+C+L+U bands in the infrared region of the optical third window). In addition, it exhibits very low confinement loss of 103.5 to 102.5  dB/m for that bandwidth. Moreover, to evaluate the sensitivity of the fiber properties (DT and B) during fabrication, ±0.02  μm variation in the optimum parameters is also studied.
