Recent investigations on the nonlinear dispersion law and the nonlinear wavenumber shift of the LP01 mode in step-index optical waveguides are extended to determining the effective area of the mode. The obtained result differs from that conventionally used and defines more precisely the characteristics of the nonlinear effects of self-phase modulation and soliton formation.
