Materials with a periodic structure have photonic bandgaps (PBGs), in which light can not be guided within certain wavelength ranges; thus light can be confined within a low-index region by the bandgap effect. In this paper, rectangular-shaped hollow waveguides having waveguide-walls (claddings) using the PBG have been discussed. The design principle for HE modes of hollow-core rectangular PBG waveguides with a Bragg cladding consisting of alternating high- and low-index layers, based on a 1D periodic multilayer approximation for the Bragg cladding, is established and then a novel single-polarization hollow-core square PBG waveguide using the bandgap difference between two polarized waves is proposed. Our results demonstrated that a single-polarization guiding can be achieved by using the square Bragg cladding structure with different layer thickness ratios in the mutually orthogonal directions and the transmission loss of the guided mode in a designed hollow-core square PBG waveguide is numerically estimated to be 0.04 dB/cm.
