Calculation of dispersion for two optical fiber profiles by the propagating beam technique


  • M. D. Feit,

  • J. A. Fleck Jr.


The propagating beam method provides an accurate configuration space description for the field in an optical fiber. From the Fourier transforms of certain correlation functions of the field it is possible to generate all mode properties of the field. These methods are applied to two fiber profiles in order to determine their dispersion properties.
