Module 2a


Optical Fibers

LP Modes in an Optical Fiber


(1) Use the Existing Modules / Components for Your Research Papers, Research Projects, Theses and Lab Simulation Experiments.
(2) Modify the Modules / Components to the Next Level for Your Research Papers, Research Projects and Theses.
(3) Integrate Different Modules / Components in the OCSim Package to Realize Your Own Fiber Optic Communication Systems.
(4) Modify the Modules for Co-Simulations with the Third Party Commercial Optical Communication Systems Softwares.


Main Module


The LP modes of a step-index fiber are obtained by solving the eigenvalue equation Eq.(4) (see the manual). Eq. (4) is of the form f(\beta ) = 0; the roots of this equation are found using the matlab function fminbnd().

In a step-index fiber, core index n_{{1}} = 1.45, cladding index n_{{2}} = 1.442, core radius a = 9 microns, wavelength = 1.55 microns.

2a.1. Plot the field vs radius for all the modes.
2a.2. Plot V vs b curves for LP01, LP11 and LP03 modes. Using this curve, find the cutoff wavelength for the single-mode operation of a fiber with n_{{1}} = 1.46 and Δ =0.005.
