Abstract

We propose a new method of separately measuring the LP01 and LP11 mode losses in the two-mode-propagation region of optical fibers. It is found that LP11 mode loss measured by this technique rapidly increases as the wavelength approaches the effective cutoff wavelength, while the LP01 mode loss shows the expected Rayleigh scattering loss versus wavelength.
