We numerically analyzed the polarization properties of two birefringent photonic bandgap holey fibers with different geometries. Our calculation method is fully vectorial and uses a hybrid edge/nodal finite element approache with PML absorbing boundery conditions. In both structures, we determined the spectral dependence of the phase modal birefringence and the spectral dependence of the losses for the fundamental modes of orthogonal polarizations. Our results show that the dependence of losses upon mode polarization is so high that both structures can be used as fiber polarizers.
