Abstract

A hexagonal slotted porous core tube lattice cladding photonic crystal fiber (SPC-TLC-PCF) is suggested to simultaneously achieve a very high birefringence and low transmission loss. At the operating frequency of 1 THz the proposed SPC-TLC-PCF yields a birefringence of 9.06×10−2 and effective material loss of 0.047 cm−1. The fiber operates at fundamental mode only and exhibits a small positive dispersion less than 1.6 ps/THz/cm over a band of 250 GHz (0.85 THz to 1.1 THz). Moreover, bending loss is around 1.61×10−7 cm−1 at 1 THz and confinement loss is also pretty small. These favorable attributes endorse this SPC-TLC-PCF much useful for polarization maintaining applications and sensing applications in THz regime.
