Paper Abstract

The propagation characteristics for both bound power and tunneling ray power is analysed for one practical fiber system having N number of splices. The analysis is carried out considering the quality of each splices in the transmission system. It is observed that clad power increases with the number of splices and it depends on the quality of splices and fiber parameters like numerical aperture and diameter of both transmitting and receiving fibers. Better agreement between experimental results • and theoretical analysis is obtained. It is observed experimentally that the clad power is increased by , 30% having two equal spaced splices of loss of 0.2 dB each in a fiber of distance )4.5 Km between transmitter and receiver when compared with a system having no splice losses. Experimental lower values of splice losses for the fiber having more clad power are also verified with the theoretical analysis. Clad power is measured by clad probing technique.
