Numerical investigation of microbending loss in optical fibres

Abstract:

Microbending plays a key role in the bend loss of optical fibres. To numerically investigate microbending induced loss, an analytical model for microbending in optical fibres with arbitrary refractive index profiles is presented. In this model, random perturbations of the fibre core along the fibre axis are described by an analytical function whose power spectral density is derived from an exponential autocorrelation function. Using the model together with the beam propagation method, microbe...
