Modeling large air fraction holey optical fibers

By T.M. Monro, D.J. Richardson, N.G.R. Broderick and P.J. Bennett


We develop a modal decomposition approach to solve the full vector wave equation for holey optical fibers (HF). This model can be used to explore the modal properties of a wide range of HFs, including those with large air holes. The optical properties of HF can be tailored via the arrangement of the air holes, and this flexibility leads to a wide range of practical application
