Paper Abstract

A new numerical approach based on the solution of the full vectorial Maxwell equations is applied to investigate the waveguiding dispersion parameters of birefringent optical fibers. A mathematical procedure particularly suitable for solving the nonlinear eigenvalue problem is used to determine precisely the constant of propagation for the HEx11 and HEy11 polarized modes. For elliptical core fiber, the normalized group-delay and the normalized chromatic dispersion for these two polarized modes are computed for a large range of the normalized frequency. The dispersion coefficients obtained from these characteristics curves have a crucial importance in the mathematical description of various phenomena in linear and nonlinear Kerr-like elliptical core fibers. The proposed approach is based on a finite-element scheme and could be applied for arbitrary refractive-index profile of any multimode fiber.
