Abstract

We model the drawing of a six-hole microstructured optical fibre with a combination of asymptotic techniques and a new efficient numerical method, and compare this to a previous set of experiments and finite element simulations. The new approach accurately models the deformation of the inner channels and predicts cross-sectional fibre geometries that are a better match to the experiments than the fibres, more computationally expensive simulation technique.
