Equation (8.45) was derived for the case where the light incident upon the sending end of the optical fiber extends over the entire acceptance cone shown in Fig. 8-12(b). Suppose the incident light is constrained to a narrower range extending between normal incidence and ?0; where ?0 <>
(a) Obtain an expression for the maximum data rate fp in terms of ?0.
(b) Evaluate fp for the fiber of Example 8-5 when ?0 = 5o.
