We present a systematic method for designing hollow-core photonic bandgap fiber geometries with arbitrary structural distortions. Fully vectorial finite element simulations on fibres with realistically distorted claddings reveal that while some distortions are detrimental, a rearrangement of the core surround may reduce the loss by a factor as high as 2.4 compared to “ideal” fibers with no penalty on bandwidth.
