A computer program has been developed to study the total pulse response of optical fibers with profile ripple and central index depressions in the presence of arbitrary mode coupling. We have found that the magnitude of the compression of the total pulse response generated by mode coupling depends significantly on the details of the refractive-index profile of the test fiber.
