Using a novel computational method, the fundamental mode in index-guided microstructured optical fibers with genuinely infinite cladding is studied. It is shown that this mode has no cut-off, although its area grows rapidly when the wavelength crosses a transition region. The results are compared with those for w-fibers, for which qualitatively similar results are obtained. © 2005 Optical Society of America.
