Abstract

The coefficients for the expansion of a plane wave in terms of the eigenstates (modes) of a Selfoc® fiber are derived. This result is used as the basis for a suggestion for a new optical fiber whose spectral response could be any one of the functions used extensively in colorimetric instrumentation.
