Abstract

Parametric studies were done on the propagation characteristics of single-mode fiber using measured refractive-index profile data. Two types of profile were considered—a graded-index core with a depressed cladding (Δ′ < 0), and a triangular index core with no depressed cladding. The computations employ accurate material dispersion data for the germania-doped silica core and the fluorine-doped silica cladding. The investigation also includes the use of an α-index profile as an idealized profile using the same computational method. We find that there is good agreement with the experiments.
