Arbitrary graded-index HOF(Hollow Optical Fibers) are analyzed using the modified Airy function, and the corresponding eigenvalue equation that renders precise results is derived. For graded index HOF, the gradient of an evanescent field in hollow region could be adjusted more sharply than the conventional step-index HOF and the feasibility of more effective atom-guiding is confirmed.
