Abstract

Infrared wavelength dependence of leaky mode losses and steady state distribution (SSD) in W-type glass optical fibers (doubly clad fibers with three layers) is investigated in this paper for parametrically varied depths and widths of the fiber's intermediate optical layer. This enables a tailoring of configuration of the W-type fiber to suit an application at hand. We have shown that the proposed W-type fiber has better transmission characteristics at longer infrared wavelengths.
