Abstract

Based on a set of exact vector form solutions to Maxwell’s equations for optical waveguides, we studied the parametric effects on propagation characteristics of the HE11 mode, varying the lightguide parameters (λ,Δ,a,α). In this work a three-term Sellmeier equation was employed to describe accurately the material dispersion of a single-mode fiber doped with GeO2. The calculated results are compared with the measured values and found to be in good agreement.
