Abstract

The effect of chirality on the modal dispersion characteristics of optical fibers is investigated. Using a step-index fiber as a numerical example, we show that adding chirality to the core changes the modal normalized propagation constants b, group delay, and waveguide dispersion drastically. Some potential applications are briefly discussed.
