Abstract

An all-fiber antenna with a piezoelectric polymer-coated circular-core D fiber has been characterized by finite-element analysis. The response of the D-fiber antenna was determined over a wide frequency range from 1 to 500 MHz. The modeling predicts an electric-field-induced phase shift of 2.43 x 10(-5) rad/(V/m)/m at 5 MHz. At frequencies higher than 8 MHz the optical response is dominated by radial resonances of the D-fiber-coating composite. From the simulation results a minimum detectable electric field of 41-mu V/m has been achieved with a 1-km length of coated D fiber. In addition, a D-fiber antenna network intended for microcellular communications has been analyzed by shot-noiAmerise-limited detection.
