Hi, I have a problem with my project, I don’t know how to connect two optical fiber with different parameters (single mode and multi mode fiber). How to set simulation parameters to check whether light propagates in this structure? Is this possible to simulate wave propagation in this construction?
Thank you in advance,
Patrycja

      Dear Patrycja,
      Are you trying to use these two types of fiber in OptiSystem?
      As you know, LP01 propagates in SMF and there is a component that can be placed between the two fibers to allow integrating them as shown in the attached image.
      I hope this answers your question, else you me contact me at ahmad.atieh@optiwave.com for further discussions.
      Regards,
      Ahmad

      I would agree with Ahmad, particularly in the need to clarify which product you are using because in your specific situation the OptiSystem solution may be better as OptiBPM operates on the assumption of gradual dielectric change along the direction of propagation which is not typically the case in splices.
