Splicing Hetero-core Fibers in Perspective of Different Material Compositions
A comprehensive study has been done utilizing effective index method. We analyze splice losses of Photonic crystal fiber (PCF) with single mode fiber (SMF) pertaining to different materials (phosphate, crown). We observe that losses with respect to splicing between SMF-PCF of dissimilar material composites, viz., phosphate and crown, are also influenced by modal parameters such as diameter and pitch of the micro-structured fiber. Results suggest dependence of losses on modal parameters with less magnitude of losses in crown compared to phosphate.
