Bound and radiation modes both have real propagation constants; they can propagate indefinitely without loss. Bound modes are localised (with most of their power close to and within the core of the fibre). They can have simple or complicated structures as in Figs. 1(a) and (b) but the power outside any given radius decays exponentially. Radiation modes are delocalised (see Figs. 1(c) and (d)): although the intensity profile decays, it does not decay very rapidly and the power outside any given radius is always infinite.

1 Numerical Aperture When wavelengths are much smaller than the size of spatial structures a geometric optics approach can be used. In the geometric optics limit, a ray will travel down a fibre if its inclination to the core-cladding boundary is less than the critical angle required for total internal reflection. Thus optical fibres will only propagate light that enters within a certain range of angles, known as the acceptance cone (see Fig. 4). The vertex half-angle of this cone is called the acceptance angle, θmax .
