1- A step index fiber has been used to transmit light of wavelength of 0.82 m .
This fiber has a core diameter of 50 m and refractive index of 1.48, cladding
refractive index of 1.46. If the light coming out from the fiber is expanded to
spot with a diameter 2 mm.
(a)
To focus the light by using a lens, what is the focal length of this lens.
(b) If this fiber is used to support only one mode at a wavelength 1250
nm. find the maximum core radius of this fiber.
(c)
If the fiber is immersed in water (refractive index 1.33). what is the
acceptance angle of the fiber.
(d) Compute the number of modes propagating in this fiber.

5- A pulsed Nd:YAG laser beam used in eye surgery emits a pulse of energy of
about 1 mJ in 1 ns. The laser beam is focused to a tiny spot of 30 m diameter in
the interior of the eye.
( a ) What is the power density of the laser beam at the focal spot.
(b) Assuming that the electric field strength of the laser beam at any point is
given by

Where, E e is the power density,  is the permittivity of the eye medium, n is
the refractive index, c speed of light, E0 is the electric field strength. If n = 1.33
for eye and   78 0 where  0 is the vacuum permittivity and equal to 8.854X
10-12 C2/ Nm2.
Find the electric field strength at the focal spot in the eye.

6- Laser Doppler Velocimetry technique ( LDV) is used to measure the speed of
objects. Suppose a HeNe laser ( 632.8 nm) beam is reflected from a traveling car
and the recorded shift in the frequency of the laser beam is 6.32 x 107 Hz.
Find the speed of the car.
