In this paper, using the FEM method new low-loss fiber is proposed to minimize Rayleigh scattering with a segmented-core and depressed inner-cladding. The optical loss of the designed fiber is calculated based on Rayleigh scattering losses. Rayleigh scattering loss (RSL) has been estimated by Rayleigh scattering coefficient (RSC) and power distribution in the fiber. We have shown loss of less than 0.3 dB/km at 1310 nm, 0.18 dB/km at 1550 nm for step-index fibers which consist of conventional glass compositions such as SiO2, GeO2-SiO2, F-SiO2 while satisfying all of ITU-G.652.D attributes.
