Computational studies of light acceptance and propagation in straight and curved multimodal active fibres

Abstract:

A Monte Carlo simulation has been performed to track light rays in cylindrical multimodal fibres by ray optics. The trapping efficiencies for skew and meridional rays in active fibres and distributions of characteristic quantities for all trapped light rays have been calculated. The simulation provides new results for curved fibres, where the analytical expressions are too complex to be solved. The light losses due to sharp bending of fibres are presented as a function of the ratio of curvatu...
