Paper Abstract

The exact field solution of a step index profile fiber was used to determine the excitation efficiency of a distribution of sources in the core of an optical fiber. Previous results of a thin- film cladding source distribution are compared to its core source counterpart. The behavior of Peff with the fiber parameters was examined and found to be similar to the behavior exhibited by cladding sources. It also was found that a core source fiber is two orders of magnitude more efficient than a fiber with a bulk distribution of cladding sources. This result agrees, qualitatively, with previous ones obtained experimentally.
