Temperature change of the water infiltrated PCF is an interesting and practical method for a dynamical fine tuning of dispersion in active dispersion shift compensating systems. In this paper we present a numerical study on the influence of the temperature of infiltrated water on the dispersion and modal characteristics of photonic crystal fiber. We study regular hexagonal lattice photonic crystal fibers with various geometrical parameters using finite element method.
