Cutoff-wavelength determination in single-mode fibers by mode interference

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

An effective cutoff wavelength λceff in single-mode fibers is defined, and a simple interferometric method for its determination is demonstrated. This method is essentially independent of launching conditions and differential mode attenuation. At λceff the power fraction of the LP11 mode in the core is less than 1/e.
