Paper Abstract

The paper presents a direct solution of the scalar wave equation for a highly-elliptical-core weakly guiding fiber-optic sensor. The simplified method developed has the advantage that all fiber parameters (a,b, n1, and n2) can be fed in from a keyboard and the necessary sensor/device parameters can be found almost instantly. The program is a useful tool for determinations of optimal operating wavelengths and fiber parameters and can be used as aid in the design of novel fibers.
