Paper Abstract

A theoretical waveguide model of elliptical fibers with the step-index is presented. From it the eigenvalue equation, the mode field distributions and the cutoff frequencies can be obtained. The effectiveness of the model is demonstrated in characterizing elliptical fibers with the step-index. The waveguide theory for circular fibers is just a special case of this model.
