Paper Abstract

A pure silica microstructured optical fiber(MOF) with seven dual cores is designed for chromatic dispersion compensation by a finite difference frequency domain(FDFD) method with a perfect matched layer(PML) boundary condition. The multi-core structure fiber is presented for the first time. The negative chromatic dispersion peak value of the designed microstructured fiber is -4500ps/ and the full width at half maximum (FWHM) is evaluated at 12nm. Furthermore the effective area of the inner core fundamental mode can reach 65mm2 at 1550nm wavelength, which is three times that of a conventional dispersion compensating fiber (DCF).
