Abstract

Using the power flow equation and experimental measurements, investigated in this article is the state of mode coupling in low NA (0.3) step-index plastic optical fibers for laser beam launch. Results show the coupling length L c at which the equilibrium mode distribution is achieved and the length zs of the fiber required for achieving the steady-state mode distribution. Numerical results obtained using the power flow equation agree well with experimental measurements. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
