Modal Analysis and Dispersion Curves of a New Unconventional Bragg Waveguide Using a Very Simple Method
By

Abstract
A theoretical modal dispersion study of a new unconventional Bragg waveguide having hypocycloidal core cross-section and surrounded by Bragg cladding layers is presented using a very simple boundary matching technique [1]. An attempt has been made to determine how the modal characteristics of a standard Bragg fiber change as its circular shape is changed to the hypocycloidal shape. It is seen that in the case of a hypocycloidal Bragg waveguide single mode guidance is possible when V ≤ 10.0 where V is the normalized frequency parameter.
