Abstract

In this paper we report, for the first time, on the chromatic dispersion, in the 1.9-5.2 μm region, of single-mode, mid-IR, heavy metal fluoride (HMF) fibers with a-profiles. Excellent dispersion-flattened characteristics are obtained with a range of a-profiles, core diameters and relative index differences. Small variations in these three parameters are not critical.
