The propagation characteristics of optical fiber play a very important role in the design of a fiber optic communication system. In this paper, we have analyzed the Propagation Characteristics of Bragg fiber using transfer matrix method and have also found the modal filed distribution of the fundamental mode of Bragg fiber. We haves worked on the MATLAB and used its optical waveguide tool box for generation our results.
