Abstract

Using the power flow equation, the state of mode coupling in 100 400 μm core step-index silica optical fibers is investigated in this article. Results show the coupling length L c at which the equilibrium mode distribution is achieved and the length z s of the fiber required for achieving the steady-state mode distribution. Functional dependences of these lengths on the core radius and wavelength are also given. Results agree well with those obtained using a long-established calculation method. Since large core silica optical fibers are used at short distances (usually at lengths of up to 10 m ), the light they transmit is at the stage of coupling that is far from the equilibrium and steady-state mode distributions.
