Abstract: © 2018, Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature. In this paper the effect of photonic crystal fiber’s structure parameters on Rayleigh scattering was investigated. Rayleigh scattering loss (RSL) has been numerically estimated by average Rayleigh scattering coefficient based on the empirical relations for V and W parameters of double-clad photonic crystal fibers (DC PCFs). The dependence of RSL on the two structural parameters—the air hole diameter and the hole pitch was demonstrated. We have shown that RSL depends on the index profiles because of the different optical power confinement factors in every layer of DC PCF. Using these results, the RSL can be optimized by adjusting the fiber parameters—air-hole diameter as well as the air-hole pitch.
