Paper Abstract

We present a unified analytical method to study mode fields and other characteristics in the ellipsoid shaped fibers. The model takes account of both elliptical and cylindrical coordinate systems, simultaneously. We obtain spot size equations, field distribution and propagation constants of several lower modes, and birefringence of the fundamental modes by using the variational method and Hermite-Gaussian approximation. As an example, we discuss the solutions of the double elliptical-clad fiber and give some numerical results. It is shown that the method and the expressions discussed in universal form can be applied to analyze arbitrary E-shaped fiber.
