A new model for light propagation in holey optical fibers is developed in which the transverse index profile and the modal field are decomposed using different orthogonal functions. It is an efficient and accurate alternative to previous techniques, and is an invaluable tool to aid fabrication efforts. Using this model, a number of regimes of interest in these fibers are explored.
