Abstract
Simulation of splicing process of fibers with large effective area Aeff with standard telecommunication fibers is presented in the article. The aim of the simulation was to design the process of diffusion in spliced fibers in order to compensate radiuses of mode fields of spliced fibers. The simulation showed that refractive index profiles both in fibers with step and step (standard telecommunication fibers) index refractive profile reach, after appropriate design of diffusion process, single diffusion maximum, that may be approximated with Gaussian distribution. The results of estimation of loss of above mentioned splicings were presented. Adjusting of mode field radius and length of transit areas TEC (Thermally Diffused Expanded Core Area) was taken under consideration.
