Bending performance of large mode area multi-trench fibers

Bending performance of large mode area multi-trench fibers
Bending performance of the Multi-trench Fibers (MTFs) has been investigated using the Finite Element Method. Numerical investigations show that MTFs can provide low-loss effective single mode operation under bent configuration, thanks to the resonant coupling of the Higher order Modes (HOMs). Large ratio between the HOMs and the Fundamental Mode (FM) losses can be ensured, although the ratio drops with increasing Effective Area (Aeff) of the FM. MTFs provide better losses ratio between the HOMs and the FM in comparison with other fibers like step-index, W-type, and parabolic fibers.

Abstract

Bending performance of the Multi-trench Fibers (MTFs) has been investigated using the Finite Element Method. Numerical investigations show that MTFs can provide low-loss effective single mode operation under bent configuration, thanks to the resonant coupling of the Higher order Modes (HOMs). Large ratio between the HOMs and the Fundamental Mode (FM) losses can be ensured, although the ratio drops with increasing Effective Area (Aeff) of the FM. MTFs provide better losses ratio between the HOMs and the FM in comparison with other fibers like step-index, W-type, and parabolic fibers.
