Abstract

The author studied the propagation of the fundamental mode, called the LP//0//1 mode, of a single-mode optical fiber and the LP//1//1 mode, the next higher-order mode, in two long lengths of fiber coupled together. This was done by launching light having a wavelength below the cut-off wavelength of the fiber. The effect of lateral misalignment at the coupled junctions was investigated. The results are explained in terms of excitation of the modes at this junction.
