The demand for high data rate on optical fiber networks is ever increasing. Dispersion is the major limiting factor for the data rate of an optical fiber link. Present day dense wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) networks need very stringent dispersion management criteria. Within the two decades of commercial deployment of optical fiber links, dispersion phenomenon is well understood and different methods for combating the pulse spreading due to dispersion are developed. In the recent years… CONTINUE READING
