Two structures of Hexagonal Photonic Crystal Fiber have been designed in this paper. The first structure contains four circular shaped air hole rings in hexagonal configuration having Perfectly matched layer and Scattering Boundary Condition and the second structure contains a three rings Photonic Crystal fibers without Perfectly match layer and Scattering boundary condition. We have used COMSOL Multi physics (5.2) to design this models. Comsol Multi Physics uses Finite Element Method for the simulation process. And MATLAB is used to plot the effective refractive index with respect to wavelength. The variation of effective refractive index by varying wavelength and diameter of air holes have been analyzed.
