Designing Dirac vortex topological photonic crystal fibres

Asymmetric and symmetric approaches to an SPSM. (a) Dominant approach to split the degenerate fundamental modes by structural asymmetry. (b) Proposed Bragg fibre design to guide light by a singly degenerate mode with lower loss than other modes. (c) The topological PCF provides singlet mid-gap dispersion for a broadband SPSM.
