The dependence of the temporal width of the impulse response on the length z of a two-mode optical fiber is examined. This quantity, which is proportional to z in the absence of mode coupling and to z^(1/2) in the presence of weak random coupling among the guided modes, possesses a different dependence in the case of a deterministic resonant-coupling model, appropriate for describing a rather general class of actual situations. The relevant role played by the coherence time of the signal is demonstrated.
