Paper Abstract

We examine now the p0owers coupled to LP01 and LP02 modes in a few mode optical fiber from axially aligned single mode fiber vary with fiber parameters. The study shows that by selecting the fiber parameters approximately it is possible to excite either only the LP01 mode or both the modes with equal powers. The study should find applications in the design of recently demonstrated few mode fiber sensors.
