The single-mode optical fiber used currently in communication systems starts showing many limitations especially for the high rates. Several physical phenomena related to the optical propagation are the cause of these limitations. The use of photonic crystal fibers (PCF) makes it possible to control most of these phenomena. In this paper, a multicriteria method is used for the design of the photonic crystal fiber with the user-defined optical proprieties. This method combines the deductive and the inductive learning and it is introduced for the first time in the field of optical fibers. This multicriteria method proves to be a powerful tool for the PCF fibers design.
