A dispersion-shifted fiber (DSF) is designed to have its zero dispersion wavelength in 1.55μm wavelength range. Since the dispersion of DSF is close to zero in the C-band, conditions for dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transmission using DSF are limited due to four wave mixing (FWM). In the L-band, however, the DSF has some dispersion values, so that the DWDM transmission using DSF is possible like non-zero dispersion-shifted fibers (NZDSF.) A DSF has a typical dispersion from 5… CONTINUE READING
