Ferreira, Filipe and Sanchez Costa, Christian and Sygletos, Stylianos and Ellis, Andrew (2017) Semi-Analytical Modelling of Linear Mode Coupling in Few-Mode Fibers. [Data Collection]

Collection Method

Matlab scripts, source C-code, mex compiled C-code, and figure data points for the paper entitled “Semi-Analytical Analytical Modelling of Linear Mode Coupling in Few -Mode Fibers”. Folders: 0_differential_equations_solver Matlab scripts based on the Symbolic Math Toolbox for the derivation of a semi-analytical solution to the differential equations describing linear mode coupling in few-mode fibres. Scripts available for 3, 4, 5 and 6 modes. 1_C_code_for_high_precision_solution_of_polynomials C-code for the numerical evaluation of the 6-modes semi-analytical solutions obtained in 0_differential_equations_solver. Two versions: “highPrecRootFind_6M_doubleIO” uses always the same seed for the root finding section; “highPrecRootFind_6M_doubleIO_rand” uses a randomized seed for the root finding section. 2_crosstalk_vs_radial_displacement Script for plotting typical fibre coupling coefficients and plotting of the crosstalk introduced by a single fibre displacement as a function of the radial displacement and averaged in the azimuth coordinate. 3_solutions_precision Script for the evaluation of the precision of the semi-analytical solutions proposed against Runge-Kutta-Fehlberg Method (RKF45) numerical solutions. 98_poly_solvers_mex_files_compiled_for_R2014b_64bit Compiled mex C-code at 1_C_code_for_high_precision_solution_of_polynomials. Compiled for Mex Matlab R2014b 64bit. 99_fibre_parameters Typical fibre parameters used in this dataset. 100_figures_data_poins Excel files containing the data points in the figures presented in the paper.
