Abstract

We present a new numerical method for designing dispersion compensating optical fibers. The method is based on the solving of the Helmholtz wave equation with a finite-difference modesolver and uses topology optimization combined with a regularization filter for the design of the refractive index profile. We illustrate the applicability of the proposed method through numerical examples and, furthermore, address the problem of keeping the optimized design single moded by including a singlemode constraint in the optimization problem.
