ABSTRACT

Use of low bend loss optical fibers in fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) networks becomes unavoidable to improve the optical networks performance. One of the candidates is photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) for their low bend loss properties. This paper presents procedures for optimization of the bend loss of PCFs with small and large mode areas by using solvers Softwares Rsoft and Optifiber. The optimizations are performed with respect to bend radius, core radius, photonic crystal pitch and the ratio of air-filling factor. The lowest bend loss of 1 dB/cm was obtained at bend radius of 56 mm and core diameter of 22 micrometer.
