We develop a method for modeling properties of fabricated (realistic) air-silica photonic crystal fibers (PCFs). Our approach involves extracting the transverse refractive index (RI) profile of the drawn PCF from its scanning electron micrograph on which is operated a precise and fast mode-analysis recipe based on a finite difference (FD) field convergence… CONTINUE READING
