A holey fiber (HF), having very complex hole geometry, is studied by means of a numerical simulator for modal analysis based on the finite-element method (FEM). Polarization and dispersion properties as well as the full vector field distribution of the fundamental mode are investigated. The obtained numerical results show a good agreement with experimental ones reported in literature.
