Coupled-core fiber modeling

​Coupled-core fibers is a novel kind of transmission fiber that has 3-4 closely spaced cores that are strongly coupled, meaning that they exchange power over a few meters. The transmission is complicated by the fact that the mode coupling will be randomized due to small random perturbations along the fiber. The project aims to numerically simulate such random mode coupling via the eigenmodeds (supermodes) of such fibers, and compare it to measured and published results. In a longer term the principal modes (which have minimum pulse broadening in the fiber) can be determined and analyzed.
