Abstract

An approximate method for finding the band structure of simple photonic bandgap fibres is presented. Our simple model is an isolated high-index rod in a circular unit cell with two alternative boundary conditions. Band plots calculated this way are found to correspond closely to calculations using an accurate numerical method.
