We report the results of our study on the role of microfluidic infiltration technique in improving the coupling characteristics of dual-core photonic crystal fiber (PCF) couplers. Using the finite element method (FEM), we evaluate the effective mode area, dispersion and coupling parameters of an infiltrated dual-core PCF. We use these parameters to design a compact and reconfigurable coupler by solving a set of coupled generalized nonlinear Schrödinger equations. This approach allows one to obtain wavelength-flattened dispersion characteristics with bandwidth of   in the ITU region, and large walk-off length simply by choosing a suitable infiltrated refractive index. We also demonstrate that under certain conditions one can observe a pulse break-up effect to generate pulse trains with high repetition rate.
