Theory of biaxial graded-index optical fiberThe problem of wave propagation in a biaxial graded-index fiber with circular symmetry is considered. The problem is formulated in terms of four first-order differential equations for the tangential components of the electric and magnetic fields. A general solution method for solving systems of differential equations is presented. This solution method is then used to solve the system of equations for a particular example of a biaxial graded-index fiber. Numerical results for the propagation constant in the fiber are also given.
