Homework answers / question archive / A graded index fiber with a parabolic index profile supports the propagation of 742 guided modes

A graded index fiber with a parabolic index profile supports the propagation of 742 guided modes. The fiber has a numerical aperture in air of 0.3 and a core diameter of 70 μm. Determine the wavelength of the light propagating in the fiber. Further estimate the maximum diameter of the fiber which gives single-mode operation at the same wavelength.
