An exact analytical approach to the synthesis of the refractive-index profile of dual-mode optical fibres with zero intermodal dispersion is presented, and the computer-aided, trial-and-error synthesis of the optimal profile is described. The synthesis is based on inverse scattering theory. Self-consistency of free potentials corresponding to individual modes was attained by numerical methods. The characteristics of the optical fibres with synthetized profiles were analysed, the optimization constraints were specified, and an optimum profile was found. The results can be used for the design of broadband optical fibres.
