Silica-Based Birefringent Large-Mode-Area Fiber With a Nanostructure Core


Nanostructure photonic crystals with two-fold symmetry are introduced into a silica-based fiber core to induce high birefringence between the two nearly orthogonal fundamental modes. We theoretically study and provide our preliminary findings on the birefringence property of such fibers over a large wavelength range. A large-mode-area structure with a… (More)
