Abstract

We present a new integral equation method for calculating the electromagnetic modes of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) waveguides. Our formulation can easily handle PCFs with arbitrary hole geometries and irregular hole distributions, enabling optical component manufacturers to optimize hole designs as well as assess the effect of manufacturing defects. The method produces accurate results for both the real and imaginary parts of the propagation constants, which we validated through extensive convergence analysis and by comparison with previously published results.
