    Abstract

    We employ a finite-element (FE) solver with adaptive grid refinement to model hollow-core photonic crystal fibers (HC-PCFs) whose core is formed from 19 omitted cladding unit cells. We optimize the complete fiber geometry for minimal field intensity at material/air interfaces, which indicates low loss and high damage threshold, using multidimensional optimization. The optimal design shows a 99.8 % power fraction within the air and an overlap with a Gaussian mode of 96.9 %.
