Honey comb Photonic crystal fiber, Full-Vectorial Finite Element Method, Effective refractive index, modal field pattern, confinement loss


Fundamental properties such as mode field distribution, real effective refractive index, imaginary effective refractive index, confinement loss of two new kinds of
honeycomb photonic crystal fibers are successfully studied by using Full-Vectorial Finite element method (FV-FEM). Low confinement loss 0.1×10-4dB/km is achieved at wavelength 1.55µm in hollow core honey comb PCF by removing 6-air holes in cladding region with air hole diameter 1.38µm in cladding region, pitch 2.3µm and air core diameter 0.2µm.
