Abstract : A model that produces three-dimensional ray trajectories in an optical fiber is derived through the use of a simple correspondence rule. The analysis and simulations presented will be in terms of dimensionless parameters. The curves prepared are presented for allowed radial and azimuthal mode numbers and are presented in terms of dimensions which are normalized by the core radius. The model presented will be shown to be in agreement with the standard Eikonal ray theory and will serve as a link between the ray trajectories and the mode numbers of the WKB waveguide solutions of an optical fiber....
