Characteristics of Dispersion-Flattened Depressed-Cladding Single-Mode Fluoride Fibers from 1.55 to 3.1 µm
Date of Original Version
An analysis of chromatic dispersion in single-mode fluoride fibers is presented. It is shown that it is possible, with a simple depressed-cladding profile, to obtain the necessary flexibility to simultaneously achieve dispersion-flattening and minimum extrinsic losses. Hence, optimum performance is obtained over a broad wavelength region. Dispersion sensitivity to small variations in the design parameters is also reported. © 1989 IEEE
