11. A glass clad fiber is made with core glass of refractive index 1.5 and cladding is doped to
give a fractional index difference 0.0005. Calculate the cladding index and critical
internal reflection angle.

13. Differentiate the optical TDM system and code division multiplexing system.
14. A multimode step index fiber has a relative refractive index difference of 1 % and a core
refractive index of 1.5. The number of modes propagating at a wavelength of 1.3 m is
1100. Estimate the diameter of the fiber.
15. Discuss with the aid of a block diagram, the function of an optical fiber receiver in
communication with its components.
16. Fiber to fiber coupling losses is affected by intrinsic and extrinsic coupling losses. Can
intrinsic coupling losses be limited by limiting fiber mismatches?
