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 HF's, 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 applications.
