Abstract

We construct a fluid mechanics model of the drawing of microstructured optical fibres ('holey fibres'). This model can be used to understand and quantify methods for controlling the fibre geometry. The effects of preform rotation are included to examine methods for reducing fibre birefringence. Asymptotic numerical-solutions are obtained and applied to two typical microstructured-fibres and a number of practical suggestions are made for achieving sub-mm spin pitches without damaging the microstructure within.
