NUMERICAL ANALYSIS OF A NEW POLYMER PHOTONIC CRYSTAL FIBER FOR SENSING APPLICATIONS

Issam Haddouche, Cherbi lynda

Abstract

In this paper a new sensor design based on the enhancement of the evanescent field of the propagating modes is presented, the sensor is a modified Photonic Crystal Fiber (PCF) with Teflon AF used as a background material. Assessment of the sensor's performance is made by calculating Confinement loss of the waveguide. Full-Vector Finite Element Method is used throughout the analysis. Results show a remarkable enhancement in the evanescent field for this sensor compared with standard PCF waveguide.
