Paper Abstract

Recently, many programs have been developed for simulation or analysis of the different parameters of light propagation in tapered optical fibers, either for sensing or for communication purposes. In this paper, it is shown the RSOFT BeamPROP as a fairly robust and simple program, due to the existence of a graphical environment, to perform simulations with good accuracy. Results are compared with other simulation analysis, focusing on multimode interference phenomena for refractive index sensing in a tapered optical fiber, where the wavelength of the incident light, in terms of waist diameter and tapered region length are optimized.
