Fields in the cores of graded noncircular optical fibres are analysed using a new method. It is shown that the scalar wave equation in elliptical co-ordinates can be separated for many realistic noncircular profiles, thus allowing calculation of fields by a double WKB method. The boundaries separating oscillatory and evanescent regions are found by simple analysis of algebraic equations. This method supports and further explains previous analysis which used geometric optics.
