Abstract: Design of optical spectral filters based on mode coupling of optical fibers is presented. The finite difference method is applied to evaluate the dispersion characteristics of optical fiber coupler which is constructed from two fibers as a composite multi-dielectric waveguide with different cores but the same cladding. Also, power and field distributions for both fibers as a separate and as a composite waveguide are investigated. The spectral characteristics of the filters are computed depending on the coupling of two linear polarized modes LP01 and LP11. The dependence of the transmission coefficient on operating wavelengths is illustrated. Finally, the spectral bandwidth of filter as a function of the distance between the two cores is addressed.
