The transmission characteristic of single mode fibre – photonic crystal fibre- single mode fibre (SMF-PCF-SMF) structure is investigated. The propagation constants of the cladding modes are calculated and their respective field patterns are simulated. The dispersion characteristics of the cladding modes are investigated. The modes are practically restricted within the outer silica structure. This analysis also reveals the penetration of evanescent fields in outer medium which should be helpful in the design of the devices for sensing applications.
