Effect of loss on propagation in multimode fibres

Effect of loss on propagation in multimode fibres
Effect of loss on propagation in multimode fibres
An analysis is given of propagation in multimode optical fibres having finite transmission loss. Using experimentally-deduced values for the cladding loss, fibre dispersions are calculated for a range of input beam widths and are compared with experiment. It is shown that the core loss has little effect on dispersion. Cladding loss reduces dispersion for a relatively small increase in attenuation, while dispersion and attenuation become non-linear functions of length.

Abstract

An analysis is given of propagation in multimode optical fibres having finite transmission loss. Using experimentally-deduced values for the cladding loss, fibre dispersions are calculated for a range of input beam widths and are compared with experiment. It is shown that the core loss has little effect on dispersion. Cladding loss reduces dispersion for a relatively small increase in attenuation, while dispersion and attenuation become non-linear functions of length.
