Microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) achieve their desired performance via a pattern of holes that run trough the whole length of the fiber. The variation of the hole pattern allows the production of a variety of optical effects. However, the cross-sectional hole structure can be different from that designed in the preform, due to the combined effects of surface tension and internal pressure. The present paper focuses on the comparison between experiments and numerical calculation of a six… CONTINUE READING
