© 2018 IEEE. A hybrid AsSe2-As2S5 photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with a solid elliptical core is proposed and studied theoretically by the full-vector finite element method. The core and cladding of the PCF are made of AsSe2 and As2S5 glasses, respectively. Simulation results demonstrates that, at the operating wavelength of 1.55 μm, the proposed PCF not only exhibits a very high birefringence of 0.091 but also has large nonlinear coefficients of 147.8 and 78.2 W-1m-1 for the X- A nd Y-polarized (X and Y-pol) modes, respectively. Moreover, it is able to achieve two zero-dispersion wavelengths for both the X-pol (1.52 and 2.19 μm) and Y-pol (1.43 and 2.12 μm) modes. The proposed hybrid PCF exhibits excellent polarization maintaining and the nonlinearity performance, thus, suitable to be used in supercontinuum spectrum generation and polarization maintaining nonlinear signal processing.
