Attenuation leaky modes in graded non-circular multimode fibres

Ramskov Hansen, J.J., Ankiewicz, A. and Adams, M.J. (1980) Attenuation leaky modes in graded non-circular multimode fibres Electronics Letters, 16, (3), pp. 94-96. (doi:10.1049/el:19800072).

Record type: Article


A simple formula for the attenuation constant of leaky modes in a generalised class of noncircular graded-index fibres is derived both from geometrical optics and a WKB method. The leaky mode attenuation in near-parabolic profile fibres is shown to increase rapidly with increasing eccentricity of the fibre.
