Paper Abstract

This paper reviews definitions and methods for obtaining equivalent-step-index (ESI) parameters in single-mode fibers. Emphasis is on spot-size determination and extraction of ESI parameters from the data. A simple method which uses far field data to obtain ESI fiber is also described. A comparison is made between different approaches to show advantages and limitations of each. Finally, the usefulness of ESI parameters is discussed.
