Radial scattering decomposition, a tool for the modeling and design of microstructure optical fiber, including photonic bandgap fiber, is described. Building on the multipole approach, the method decomposes a fiber structure into radial shells, allowing the confinement of light to be analyzed layer by layer. This approach lends new understanding and suggests a number of new approaches to bandgap fiber design.
