Nonlinear optical distortions can be a primary system limitation in long, amplified, dense wavelength-division multiplexed (DWDM) transmission systems. Because of their low threshold, the most… (More)
A new reduced-dispersion-slope non-zero-dispersion fiber design, optimized for use in DWDM systems is presented. The low dispersion slope, S/sub 0/=0.045 ps/nm/sup 2/-km, results in significantly… (More)
PMD is becoming an important parameter to specify for high bit rate and analog transmission systems. Values of ~ 0.1 ps/√km are desired for maximum performance of ultra-long, amplified undersea… (More)
A new reduced-t~ispersion-slope non-zero-dispersion fiber design, optimized for use in D WDM systems is presented. The low dispersion slope, So = 0.045 ps/nm2-knz, results in signijicantly less… (More)
Abstract Fiber optic signal splitters have been made by welding two etched fibers to a single unetched fiber. These splitters have both low loss and low fabrication cost.
Abstract : A computer controlled Optical Time Domain Reflectometer was used to monitor and measure fiber loss during the first Bell System installation of lightguide cable using standard plowing… (More)
