We will in this presentation address, show how the fiber cladding structure influences the resulting waveguiding properties. The core may be introduced by breaking the periodicity of the air holes at the center of the fiber. It has been demonstrated experimentally that this makes it possible to localize modes in the core region by the photonic band gap (PBG) effect. The photonic crystal fibers (PCFs) were first proposed for a high-index-core region, surrounded by a periodic dielectric structure consisting of a matrix of microscopic holes placed in a silica-glass-base material.
