Abstract

A procedure based on the variational method is presented for the analysis of optical fibers with arbitrary gain or loss profiles. The procedure is validated by comparison with earlier reported results for a step gain profile. The use of the procedure for arbitrary profiles is illustrated on typical gain profiles of a fiber used in amplifiers.
