Design of subpicosecond dispersion-flattened fibers


Dispersion flattened (DF) fibers are required for wide-band WDM systems. The DF fibers designed in the past have dispersion in the range of 2.0-3.0 ps/km-nm. In this letter, we define a generalized refractive index profile that can be characterized by few controlling parameters. An optimum refractive index profile is obtained by minimizing the maximum… (More)
