This paper provides a detailed theoretical analysis of the refractive index sensitivity of antiresonant reflecting optical waveguides (ARROW's). The ARROW loss characteristics are determined by the interference effects in the cladding Fabry-Perot cavities and by the reflection phenomena at the interface between the cladding layers. Both mechanisms are described in detail and the significance of each of them is discussed for various waveguide parameters.
