Intermodal Interference in Four-Mode Air-Silica Microstructure Fiber

Yuling JI, Peng XU


Intermodal interference pattern along the fiber core has been observed when a properly femtosecond pulse is coupled into the four modes air-silica microstructure fibers. The interference pattern is well explained by using the modified effective refraction index model.
