SAPIENZA, Antonio R y GUIMARAES, Marcelo F. ANALYSIS OF THE BOUND MODES IN OPTICAL D-FIBERS. Ingeniare. Rev. chil. ing. [online]. 2006, vol.14, n.2, pp. 112-118. ISSN 0718-3305. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-33052006000100003.
In this paper an analytical solution of a waveguide with a circular core and unbounded cladding in the proximity to a dielectric halfspace is presented. This model is applied to D-shaped fiber in closed proximity to a plane. The results account for the birefringence properties of these structures. Graphics of some parameters of the fiber are calculated as a function of the normalized spatial frequency.
