We design a solid-core photonic quasi-crystal fiber (SC-PQF) of 6-fold for a wide range of operating wavelengths from 0.3 to 5 μm. Further, we explore the various optical properties, namely, birefringence, group velocity dispersion, confinement loss and nonlinearity for the proposed SC-PQF. We achieve a low dispersion of -13 ps 2 /km and a high nonlinearity of 480 W -1 km -1 for 0.3 μm wavelength. By exploiting these optical properties, we numerically demonstrate the generation of few-cycle optical pulses of pulse width 4.7 fs from 30 fs input pulse using the higher order soliton pulse compression technique.
