Abstract
In this paper, we approximate the fundamental mode in single mode step and graded index optical fiber by a single parameter Lorentzian function within scalar variational framework. We show that it works in a low V region, a region important for evanescent wave coupling, more accurately in terms of propagation constant in comparison to single parameter Gaussian for linear and nonlinear fibers. Furthermore, we show that the low V variations of normalized propagation constant b(V), group delay d(V), and waveguide dispersion g(V) with V based on Lorentzian approximation match more accurately with the results for linear optical fiber in comparison to Gaussian approximation in the low V region.
