Paper Abstract

Three different theoretical models of modal power distribution in multimode fibers are developed, including a sophisticated wave optics model. All three are tested against experiment. Also, the far-field light distribution from a multimode fiber is considered; far- field chromaticity distributions are calculated and far-field and near field intensities are compared.
