Which Test Method should be Followed for Mode Field Diameter Measurement?

The mode field in a single mode optical fiber is the single-mode field distribution of the fundamental mode giving rise to a spatial intensity distribution in the fiber. There are two methods available in the test menu - Gaussian and Petermann.

Since this is a field diameter of the light coming out from the fiber end, wonder how these two test methods came to this menu.
