Abstract

A method is proposed for predicting the evolution of the power distribution along graded-index plastic optical fibers. This method is verified against our recently reported measurements. The strong influence of mode coupling on the power distribution is demonstrated on a specific graded-index plastic fiber to illustrate the influence of mode coupling in applications, such as data transmission, power delivery, and sensing systems.
