Single-polarization single-mode (SPSM) operation of a highly birefringent (HB) photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is investigated in detail by using a full-vector finite-element method (FEM) with anisotropic perfectly matched layers (PMLs). The cutoff wavelengths of the two linearly polarized principal states can be designed by varying the structure parameters of the PCF. The confinement loss and splice loss to standard single-mode fiber for particular SPSM PCFs are calculated and optimized at both 1.30 and 1.55 μm.
