FIG. 1.

Schematic diagram of two cases of proposed PCFs design, i.e., (a): elliptical air-holes in a hexagonal symmetry on the inner two rings whereas, circular air-holes in an octagonal symmetry on the outer three rings in fused silica, and (b): circular air-holes in a hexagonal symmetry on the inner two rings whereas elliptical air-holes in an octagonal symmetry on the outer three rings in fused silica. The elliptical ratio of elliptical holes is set to be η 1 = η 2 = η 3 = 0.75 in both cases, and ai × bi = di 2 is followed by the air holes of every ring in the PCF structures, with d1 = 0.32, d2 = 0.82μm are set in the inner two rings, respectively, and d3 = 0.6μm in the outer three rings. Moreover, both of the structures have the inner two rings arranged with the pitch  = 1.0μm, and the outer three rings arranged with the pitch  = 0.765 within the same ring.

FIG. 4.

Schematic diagram of the proposed (a) case 5 and (b) case 6 PCFs. The elliptical ratios of elliptical holes in case 5 are set to be η 4 = η 5 = 0.5 in the inner two rings, and η 6 = 2.0 in the outer rings. And compare to the structure of case 5, case 6 only changed the ratio of elliptical holes in the outer rings to η 7 = 0.5, to align the major axis of holes along y-axis. The pitches  = 1.0μm and  = 0.765 are same as the previous cases, whereas the hole-pitch on inner two cladding rings is set as a stimulation variables in case 5.
