In this work, we propose and demonstrate a single-mode square-core optical fiber for optical communications. In the proposed square-core single-mode-fiber (SC-SMF), high bandwidth-distance product and low bending loß can be achieved. In this paper, first of all, we discuß the single mode condition of the SC-SMF theoretically and numerically. Then, we discuß the fabrication of the SC-SMF. We also characterize the performances of the proposed SC-SMF, such as the bending loß, and compare it with the standard single mode fiber (SSMF). A 10 Gb/s transmißion experiment using 200 m, 500 m and 1 km SC-SMFs are performed. Negligible power penalty is observed.
