Modeling/Analysis of optical fibers

In summary, the speaker is seeking guidance for a project idea related to optical fibers. They have found a software and a book on the topic, but are struggling to come up with a specific project idea to propose to their professor. They request suggestions from others who have experience in this area and mention doing a Google Scholar search for inspiration.

TL;DR Summary
I am struggling to find a project idea in the area of modeling or analysis of optical fibers
Hello PF,

I need some guide points to help me formulate a project idea on the topic of optical fibers.

Namely, the professor suggested I should look for topics on modeling of optical fibers, analysis of different optical fibers, characteristics etc. and to work in a simulator, or perform a simulation. By Googling, I found a software, which might be usefull (https://www.rp-photonics.com/ - the free version of course), and I found some books like this one: Optical Fiber Communication Systems with MATLAB® and Simulink® Models (Optics and Photonics) (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00QFFY92E/?tag=pfamazon01-20).

I browsed the book, and I found it interesting to do some modeling of optical fibers in MATLAB, and conduct a small study case, for example, or something else. But after searching on the Internet, I couldn't think of a slightest idea of something to formulate as a specific topic to offer to the professor for further development.

If some of you have an experience in this area, I would appreciate any suggestions of ideas to develop a specific project.

Thank you all!

I did a Google Scholar search on "testing optical fibers" that may give you some ideas.
