Paper Abstract

In this paper, the pump absorption efficiency and the optimum length of DCOFs with several kinds of inner cladding shapes have been studied through the ray trace method. The DCOFs with circular, rectangular, triangular, hexagonal inner cladding have been studied in this paper. Expect for the DCOF with circular inner cladding. The maximum pump absorption efficiency of the DCOFs above exceed 0.9. It is found that the triangle shape has the highest absorption and there is only little difference among the polygon DCOF. The ray trace method is a more simple and quick method and it is competent for DCOFs with more kinds of inner cladding.
