Dialogue Boxes

Fiber Profile

Select Profile Type dialog box Currently OptiFiber supports two types of profiles Refractive index profile Dopant concentration profile The “Select Profile Type” dialog box offers a choice between them. After that it popsup the “Fiber Profile” dialog box. Fiber Profile dialog box The “Fiber Profile” dialog box helps you design the refractive index profile of…

Fiber Modes

Modes dialog box The “Modes” dialog box allows you to: Select the types of modes you are interested in Select the range of mode numbers you are interested in Find the spectrum of supported modes at the specified wavelength with their mode numbers and effective refractive indices Select a mode or group of modes for…

Fiber Loss

Material Loss dialog box The “Material Loss” dialog box allows you to define parameters for the material loss models and preview them on the attached display. The material loss includes the OH radicals, infrared, and ultraviolet absorption models, as well as the Rayleigh scattering model. To access this dialog box, do the following steps: Step…

Fiber Birefringence

Birefringence dialog box The “Birefringence” dialog box allows you to define parameters of the fiber birefringence model. As described in the “Technical Background”, various mechanisms contribute to fiber birefringence. You can simply define birefringence values or follow one of the OptiFiber models. To access this dialog box, do one of the following steps: Step Action…

Polarization Mode Dispersion

Polarization Mode Dispersion dialog box The “Polarization Mode Dispersion” dialog box allows you to define parameters of the PMD model as well as choose the PMD simulation method as the ensemble simulation or spectral simulation. Theoretically, both methods are equivalent. To access this dialog box, do the following steps: Step Action 1 Select “PMD” on…

Graph Related

Table dialog box The “Table” dialog box allows you to inspect and export numerical data related to plots in the “Views” window. To access this dialog box, do the following steps: Step Action 1 Select one of the tabs in the output “Views” window 2 Select “Table” on the “Tools” menu The elements and controls…
