Paper Abstract

Characteristics of light, such as intensity, phase, polarization, and wavelength have been exploited for fiber optic devices. Recently, use of the modal characteristic of light in a multimode fiber was demonstrated for sensing and modulating applications. Initial studies, using an Automated Mode Analyzer (AMA), a specially developed experimental system designed for the characterization of devices based on modal power redistribution (MPR), is reported.
