Example text

The subscript refers to the mode numbers of the mathematical solutions. †Assuming degenerate polarization. 40 Fundamentals of fiber optics Chapter 2 Now that we have examined the V-parameter and the cut-off wavelength, let’s consider the mode or spot profile of a single-mode fiber. Suppose we inject light into one end of a single-mode fiber and then cleave the fiber’s other end and examine it with a high-power microscope. What distribution of the light do we see? 21] for step-index fiber. 25], J0(r) is the zero-order Bessel function and K0(r) is the modified Hankel function.

19] where δn1 = (n1 – n2). For most fibers, the core and the cladding are made of the same material, with small amounts of dopants in the core that increase its index slightly to form a waveguide. Thus, for most applications we can consider δn1 to be independent of wavelength. 20] represents the bulk chromatic dispersion of the material. The second term represents the waveguide dispersion. 20] is around 1310 nm. Thus, for non-dispersion-shifted fibers there is a strong impetus to transmit at 1310 nm in order to have the highest optical bandwidth available.

The equation for loss in a single-mode splice is based on coupling theory between Gaussian beams. 8 that the fundamental mode in a singlemode fiber is nearly Gaussian. 29] where ρ = (kω1)2/2 q = G2 + (σ + 1)2/4 n1 = refractive index of fiber core n0 = refractive index of medium between fibers λ = wavelength of light r = lateral offset z = longitudinal offset θ = angular misalignment ω1 = 1/e2 mode-field radius in first fiber ω2 = 1/e2 mode-field radius in second fiber Chapter 2 Fundamentals of fiber optics 47 The angle between the direction of tilt and the plane containing the transverse offset and the fiber axis is γ.
