Abstract

We investigate the nonlinear dynamic behavior of an optical ray in a focusing fiber when curving of the fiber occurs. The study indicates that, when the fiber curves, the behavior of the ray in the fiber evolves from regular to chaotic. When chaos appears, the ray’s behavior in the focusing fiber becomes irregular; then self-focusing becomes difficult, dispersion is enlarged, and the loss of light energy is increased.
