Paper Abstract

This work is focused on the selected aspects of designing of microstructured POF (mPOF) with relatively large core, limited modal dispersion and improved resistance to bending losses, discussed in the context of its possible application in FTTH systems. The calculations confirmed the possibility of effective controlling both, the propagation and macrobending losses, as well as manipulation on the number of modes and modal area. The careful theoretical analysis allowed to design a series of geometries supporting the propagation of limited number of modes and, simultaneously, relatively large mode area together with limited bending losses.
