Using the power flow equation, we have examined the mode coupling caused by intrinsic perturbation effects of the step index plastic optical fiber. A numerical solution has been obtained by the explicit finite difference method. Results show the state of mode coupling along the fiber. They indicate that the equilibrium mode distribution is achieved at much shorter lengths compared to the case with glass fibers.
