Paper Abstract

The phase space diagram for parabolic and step index fibers leads to a graphic representation of the bound, leaky, and refracted rays of ray theory. This concept is used to predict the attenuation of typical components of local area networks. The technique uses power transfer matrices to track the evolution of power distribution in ray packets. In particular, we predict and then measure the power transfer of two ray packets for a step index fiber. The comparison is encouraging.
