Ray theory of graded non-circular optical fibres

Ankiewicz, Adrian (1979) Ray theory of graded non-circular optical fibres Optical and Quantum Electronics, 11, (3), pp. 197-203. (doi:10.1007/BF00620105).

Record type: Article


Both bound and tunnelling rays exist in multimode graded fibres which do not have circular symmetry; however, the fraction of energy in the tunnelling rays is generally less than that in a similar circular fibre, especially for near-parabolic profiles. For a large class of non-symmetric profiles, no tunnelling rays can propagate.
