Paper Abstract

A special designed fiber with double layers of cores was investigated theoretically and experimentally. This fiber is widely used in astronomy to transform light from the telescope to the optical spectrum analyzer. The refractive index profile of this fiber was measured firstly. The testing result showed that the fiber has three layers of refractive index. A special layer of the highest refractive index is between the uniform general fiber core and the general low-refractive-index fiber cladding. This highest layer has higher local numeric aperture (NA), which can absorb more light when the incidence angle is little larger. A series of experiments have been done to prove that the NA is larger than normal fibers due to the higher-index layer. Two special incidence angles were measured respect to uniform and circle mode pattern.
