Re: optical fiber spatial mode calculation using measured index profile
"Beam propagation method" (BPM) is one of the buzz-phrases you want to
Some available books:
 D. Marcuse, Theory of Dielectric Optical Waveguides, New York:
Academic Press, 1974.
Keywords: Early laser books, Fiber optics, BPM, planar waveguides,
Leaky modes, Hollow waveguide, optical waveguide analysis.
 M. J. Adams, Introduction to Optical Waveguides: Wiley, 1981.
Keywords: Early laser books, optical fiber, optical waveguide
theory, Graded index, Hollow waveguide, optical waveguide analysis.
Abstract: The book presents an integrated introduction to optical
waveguide theory, covering planar, rectangular and circular guides. In
each case progress from the conducting-wall to dielectric versions,
including graded-index distributions, is discussed. The theory is
applied to a wide range of practical problems including; guidance in
stripe-geometry heterostructure lasers, various guiding structures for
integrated optics, hollow guides for waveguide lasers and dispersion in
monomode and multimode optical fibres. (778 refs.)
 T. Okoshi, Optical fibers: Academic Press, 1982.
Keywords: Early laser books, Fiber optics, book, optical fibers,
optical waveguide analysis.
 A. W. Snyder and J. D. Love, Optical waveguide theory: Chapman and
Keywords: Early laser books, Fiber optics, book, optical waveguide
Notes: Classic early work, very extensive and detailed -- but not
always easy to read.
 C. Tsao, Optical fibre waveguide analysis: Oxford University
Keywords: Fiber optics, book, optical waveguide analysis
Notes: Haven't seen this?
 K. Okamoto, Fundamentals of Optical Waveguides: Academic Press,
Keywords: Optical waveguides, fiber optics, BPM, FEM, optical
Notes: Very good, detailed text on optical waveguide and fiber modes
and especially on numerical methods for calculating such modes,
including FEM and BPM methods. Recommended by George Lawrence.
 K. Kawano and T. Kitoh, Introduction to Optical Waveguide
Analysis: Wiley, 2001.
Keywords: Optical fibers, waveguides, numerical calculations, FFT,
BPM, optical wavegide analysis
Notes: Good summary of equations for analyzing optical waveguides and
fibers, plus considerable detail on numerical analysis methods.
