Accurate forms for the generalized LP1m mode in a uniform circular-core curved fiber are given. We show that each generalized LP1m mode is composed of four linearly polarized partial fields. We also show that, when the propagation constants of HE2m , TM0m , and TE0m modes are degenerate, there are four linearly polarized modes for each generalized LP1m mode.
