Propagation characteristics of optical fibres / J. Martucci and G.L. Yip.: Co24-615/1972E-PDF

"A preliminary investigation of the propagation characteristics of the cladded fibre optical waveguide is carried out. The mode spectrum of the various circularly symmetric and hybrid surface wave modes, their group velocities and the radial dependence of their field components are presented for the case of "Leaky Modes". The work for the calculation of the attenuation coefficients of the various surface wave mode on a lossy cladded fibre is still going on. The corresponding work for the "propagating modes" which are guided by total internal reflection inside the core, is also to be pursued. It is believed that this study provides the necessary pre-requisite knowledge for the subsequent investigation of the effects of localized inhomogeneities inside the cladded fibre waveguide. A bibliography on fibre optical waveguides is provided at the end of this report"--Abstract, page i.
