Abstract

We analyze the internal evolution of light power angular distribution in typical mode scrambling configurations by comparing the resultant far fields,obtained either experimentally or computationally, with the experimental equilibrium mode distribution (EMD) far field for the plastic optical fibers (POF) considered,so as to provide an insight that helps to adapt existing scramblers to new types of POF that are coming onto the market.
