  abstract =     "Optical fibres are not only one of the major
                 components of modern optical communications systems,
                 but are also used in other areas such as sensing,
                 medicine and optical filtering. Silica microstructured
                 optical fibres are a type of optical fibre where
                 microscopic holes within the fibre result in highly
                 tailorable optical properties, which are not possible
                 in traditional fibres. Microstructured fibres
                 manufactured from polymer, instead of silica, are a
                 relatively recent development in optical fibre
                 technology, and support a wide variety of
                 microstructure fibre geometries, when compared to the
                 more commonly used silica. In order to meet the
                 automated design requirements for such complex fibres,
                 a representation was developed which can describe
                 radially symmetric microstructured fibres of different
                 complexities; from simple hexagonal designs with very
                 few holes, to large arrays of hundreds of holes. This
                 chapter presents a genetic algorithm which uses an
                 embryogeny representation, or a growth phase, to
                 convert a design from its genetic encoding (genotype)
                 to the microstructured fibre (phenotype). The work
                 demonstrates the application of variable-complexity,
                 evolutionary design approaches to photonic design. The
                 inclusion of real-world constraints within the
                 embryogeny aids in the manufacture of designs,
                 resulting in the physical construction and experimental
                 characterisation of both single-mode and high bandwidth
                 multi-mode microstructured fibres, where some
                 GA-designed fibres are currently being patented.",
