Abstract

We formulate a simple model based on mass conservation to accurately predict the structural parameters of hollow-core photonic bandgap fibers from knowledge of the second stage preforms from which they are drawn. We show that combining this model with precalculated property maps can allow real-time prediction of the optical properties of manufactured fibers.
