Abstract

Similarities between fiber bandwidth spectra and loss spectra are found to occur. Wavelength-dependent far-field radiation patterns were used to deduce that high OH ion concentrations, near the center of the core, caused differential attenuation of low-order modes. This resulted in bandwidth peaks at the same wavelengths where water absorption loss peaked.
