Step Index Profile

For an optical fiber, a refractive Index Profile characterized by a uniform Refractive Index within the Core and a sharp decrease in Refractive Index at the core-cladding interface.

Note 1: The Step-Index profile corresponds to a power-law index profile with the profile parameter approaching infinity. Note 2: The step-index profile is used in most single-mode fibers and some Multimode fibers.
