27 August 2009 Anisotropic intensity profiles in ferroelectric LiNbO3 single crystal fibers
Author Affiliations +
Experimental studies of laser light intensity profiles, with light propagation direction perpendicular to the optical c-axis, in ferroelectric single crystal fibers such as LiNbO3 are carried out and reported. Theoretical simulations of such multimode propagation of light are also conducted for the LiNbO3 single crystal fibers. The simulation and experimental studies are extended to and compared with the commercially available single mode and multimode silica optical fibers. Theoretical simulations provided a good account for the light intensity profiles measured and led to a preliminary interpretation of complex specklegram observed in anisotropic single crystal fibers.
