1 December 2009Finite element analysis of the InP nano inner cladding fiber
We proposed that nanomaterials can be used to change the characteristics of standard fibers. After two stages, preform
fabrication and fiber drawing, a novel inner cladding fiber with InP nano thin film has been successfully fabricated by
the means of MCVD. The thickness of the InP film is about 60nm. The electric field distribution is simulated through the
the finite element method. The simulation result indicates that the InP nano film can confine the electric distribution in
the core. In addition, it is calculated that the effective refractive index is 1.585.
