A Novel design of Photonic Crystal Fiber with Flattened Dispersion and Reduced Confinement Loss

Mamoona Khalid, Irfan Arshad

Abstract


Data transmission with low losses and dispersion is one of the biggest challenges for optical communication. Light should be transmitted through a fiber that has the most optimum condition for the losses and dispersion. A lot of research is being conducted on optical fibers to improve the transmission properties of the fiber so that maximum data should travel through the fiber. Photonic Crystal Fibers (PCF) have resolved this issue of data transfer from one terminal to the other with minimum losses and dispersion, moreover the transmission properties of PCF are far better than optical fibers. The purpose of the study in this paper is to find an optimum design for a PCF in which we reduce both the dispersion and confinement losses. We studied these transmission properties of PCF over a wavelength range of 1300 nm to 1550 nm. The biggest application of this design is in Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) systems in which the losses and dispersion should be minimized for better transmission of data.
