Abstract

It is found that the reflection of leaky radiation from the interface between the outer silica cladding and the coating polymer greatly modifies the loss spectrum of Bragg fibers. A simple model that describes this effect is proposed and confirmed by measurement and computation.

Effect of the polymer coating on loss spectrum: (a) fiber with the polymer coating, (b) fiber without silica–polymer interface (calculation), and with the octagonal interface (measurement). Calculated results are shown as solid ( LP 01 and LP 11 ) and dotted (higher modes) curves; measurements are given by symbols; insets show the cross sections of fibers.
