Abstract
In this paper, we analyze the guided properties of liquid core optical fibers for fiber-to-thehome application. Fiber to the Home is advance technology to give unlimited bandwidth and high speed broadband network for communication. Fiber to the Home technology refers to the installation and use of bend insensitive optical fiber cables. The liquid core optical fiber has a simple core and cladding structure. This fiber achieves high relative refractive index difference among the core and cladding is proving to be bending insensitive. The single mode condition and the group velocity dispersion, mode field diameter and the bending loss of single mode fiber are studied theoretically. Compare with traditional silica optical fiber. Liquid core optical fiber has much smaller bending loss of than traditional silica fibers. Liquid core optical fiber shows unique properties, such as more confided guided mode, low bending loss and large non linear parameters in the visible and infrared region. This type of fiber used in fiber -to-the-home applications, Broadband network and also for sensing applications.
