Introducing temperature-dependent terms into the propagation constant and its derivatives, and extinction coefficient of a core material of optical fiber, the equation of pulse propagation in a multimode fiber is derived, allowing us to evaluate the temperature dependence of a pulse waveform such as the peak-intensity, the pulse duration or width and the pulse delay-time at the peak as a function of ambient temperature. Using the weighting function for higher order modes in the above equation, the theoretically calculated waveforms are compared with the mode-locked He-Ne 3.39 µm laser pulses propagated through As-S fiber over the range from room temperature to 220, being in good agreement each other.
