By using a full-vector boundary element method (BEM) based on a formulation in terms of transverse magnetic field components, holey fibers (HFs) are numerically analyzed. The BEM provides very accurate solutions with an extremely small number of unknowns. Not only the characteristics of all-silica HFs, but also those of hole-assisted lightguide fibers and field-confined HFs, are investigated and compared with each other.
