Abstract
Hydro-Quebec optical network includes more than 5,000 km of optical ground wires [1] (OPGW) using dispersion shifted fibers (SMF-DSTM) [2]-[3]. This paper provides a model of the index profile for a typical reference fiber and the mathematical approximations of the amplitude of the LP01 mode at six important wavelengths (1.31, 1.41, 1.45, 1.48, 1.55, 1.625 μm). The fiber model has a triangular core and a quadratic ring shape. The weakly guided mode is obtained using the variational principle [4] implemented using an algorithm based on a Laguerre-Gauss-Bessel approximation of the field [5]. We modeled the wavelength dependence of the index of refraction of germanium doped silica using an experimental formula [6]. A comprehensive algorithm was developed to compute the normalized damping factor W and the normalized propagation constant U in the variational algorithm. The mode field diameter, group velocity and chromatic dispersion were also computed at the above wavelengths.
