Abstract

This study presents a comprehensive analysis of various photonic crystal fiber (PCF) lattice structures using the Finite Element Method (FEM). PCFs have gained significant importance in various optical and communication applications due to their unique optical properties. Understanding the characteristics and optimal designs of different PCF lattice structures is crucial for their effective utilization. In this research, we explore eight distinct lattice designs, including circle, square, pentagon, hexagon, heptagon, octagon, decagon, and dodecagon. We investigate how variations in the air filling fraction, a critical structural parameter, affect the performance of these PCF structures. The utilization of FEM allows for a detailed analysis of these lattice structures, offering insights into their behavior under different conditions. By varying the air filling fraction, we gain valuable insights into the optimal design choices for specific applications. This research aims to provide a deeper understanding of the applicability of each PCF lattice structure. By scrutinizing their performance and characteristics, it becomes possible to distinguish which lattice structure is best suited for various optical and communication applications. The findings from this study offer significant contributions to the field of photonics, guiding researchers and engineers in selecting the most suitable PCF lattice structure for their specific applications. Understanding the structural parameters that influence PCF behavior is a key step toward optimizing the performance of optical and communication systems.
