Abstract

Using an asymptotic analysis, we analytically calculate the dispersion and the field distribution of guided modes in an all-dielectric coaxial fiber. We compare the analytical results with those obtained from numerical calculations and find excellent agreement between them. We demonstrate that both the Bragg reflection and the total internal reflection play important roles in providing confinement and determining the dispersion characteristics of the coaxial fiber modes.
