Abstract

We extend the previous theoretical study on the effect of outer silica cladding to the analysis on real field profiles in a practical PCF. Clear field profiles for the first higher-order cladding modes are presented and discussed. The observed mode fields are reproduced by numerical calculations, and it turns out that they correspond to LP16 mode groups. Optical properties of the observed modes such as lobe direction and polarization are also investigated. The results of this study will be useful in the design of the PCF-based optical devices utilizing cladding mode coupling.
