Paper Abstract

In this paper, we present a novel cross section shape DCF. Truncated from a circular DCF, the inner cladding of this DCF is bounded by two equal angular spiral curves. By using the concept of mean transverse path between successive encounters of the core, we developed a new method to calculate the absorption efficiency per unit fiber length. For a spiral shape DCF with the largest radius R=100μm , radius of doped core r0=4μm , and the angle parameter of spiral curve θ=0.04 , we calculated the mean transverse path between successive encounters of the core lr=2903μm . The corresponding lc with other truncated shape cross section having the same cross sectional area is lc=3454μm . Final results show that the absorption efficiency η increases 16% for our spiral shape DCF.
