Multicore Fiber


Hi all,

Do examples exist in Lumerical of multicore fibers (MCF’s)? If not, anyone have a hint how one could be made?



If the multicore fiber has a cross section similar to figure 2 of the paper linked here where several circular cores are arranged in a hexagonal array:

Then it could be set up very similarly to the photonic crystal fiber example here:

The photonic crystal fiber example uses MODE Solutions’ FDE solver to find and analyze the modes of the fiber.
