Recently, photonic crystal fibers have attracted significant attention for their applications in optical fiber communication systems. In some polarization sensitive applications photonic crystal fibers with single-mode and single-polarization are desirable. In this paper, a rectangular-core single-mode single-polarization large-mode-area photonic crystal fiber structure has been designed based on higher order mode filtering. The single-polarization is obtained with asymmetric design and introducing different loss for x-polarization and y-polarization of fundamental mode. Single-polarization single-mode operation of a highly bi-refringent photonic crystal fiber is investigated in detail by using a full-vector finite-element- method with anisotropic perfectly-matched-layer. At optimized parameters, the confinement loss and effective-mode-area is obtained as 0.9 dB/m and 927 μm2 for x-polarization as well as 12.53 dB/m and 921 μm2 for y-polarization of fundamental mode respectively at 1.55 μm. Therefore, 1.6 m length of fiber will be sufficient to get x-polarized fundamental mode with effective-mode-area as large as 927 μm2.
