Step-Index Fiber Bend

Application ID: 14189

The first part of the application computes the modes for a straight step index fiber made of silica glass.
In the second part, a step index fiber bend with a 3 mm radius of curvature is analyzed with respect to propagating modes and radiation loss. It is shown how to find the power averaged mode radius and how to use this to compute the effective mode index.
