Paper Abstract

A method has been developed that allows to characterize mode sensitive fiber-optic components as well as to predict concatenation effects quite accurately by means of 3x3 mode transition matrices. This characterization method works with fibers of nearly arbitrary index profile. The profile only needs to be monotonic and continuously differentiable. All measurement results are in good agreement with theoretically expected results. Application of the matrix in practice involves multiplication only.
