Photonic crystal fibers have been used widely since 20 years back in the communication system. The aim of this paper is to introduce a linear structure that can control and guide light. Tri-core photonic crystal fiber is a newly developed technology through which some objectives are trying to be achieved. First of all, the aim is simply to minimize the dispersion, so that the design can be used in various communicating applications. Once dispersion is minimized, the objective is to minimize confinement loss, then to improve the transmission factor. All these objectives can be achieved by the proposed design of silica PCF having air hole distance or PITCH equal to 2 µm. Diameter of air holes increases from 0.5 to 1.5 µm. In the end, the proposed structure is analyzed for various sensing applications like salinity and temperature detection, stress detection, and glucose detection. Opti-FDTD is used to design this structure.

With this proposed design, it is observed that such types of PCF designs can be helpful to society in terms of management and detection of stress, pain, and emotions in life. This will be a great field of research in the upcoming years.
