We propose an index guiding highly nonlinear birefringent photonic crystal fiber (PCF). Usiing a full vectorial finite element method (FEM), we investigate the key propagation characteristics of the proposed design. We demonstrate that it is possible to design a simple PCF structure configuration with a birefringence in the order of 10-2 and a nonlinear coefficient of 49 W-1 km-1 at the wavelength of 1.55 microns. It is demonstrated that two zero dispersion wavelengths can be achieved by the proposed design. Bending analysis and fabrication issues are also discussed thoroughly.
