A novel form of rhombus solid dual-core PCFs structures filled with propylene glycol for different air hole diameter is presented. The proposed fiber contains seven circular air holes. Using Rsoft FEMSIM software, the transmission properties such as confinement loss, effective mode area, chromatic dispersion, birefringence, nonlinearity, and Veff are analyzed. The proposed structure shows the high birefringence of 1.07 × 10−4, low confinement loss along X polarization is 1.8606 × 10−4 and along Y polarization is 1.5095 × 10−4 dB/m, large negative dispersion, effective area of 27.66 µm2 at 1.55 µm. Proposed fiber has ultimate performance, and it is uncomplicated and easy to fabricate.
