Dual-Core Photonic Crystal Fiber for Use in Fiber Filters


An asymmetrical dual-core photonic crystal fiber (DC-PCF), which possesses all circular air holes, is proposed. By setting appropriate geometrical parameters, the wavelength-selective coupling property is realized, and a compact optical filter with a short length of 1.83 mm based on the DC-PCF is designed. The spectral transmission characteristics of the filter are investigated by the beam propagation method. The results demonstrate that the optical filter possesses a bandwidth of ∼ 58 nm and small sidelobes. The proposed optical filter could be used in the integrated optical systems.
