Abstract

A new class of index profiles is analyzed. These profiles afford new degrees of freedom in profile design, which make it possible to obtain maximum bandwidth over an extended range of wavelengths or at several different wavelengths. A method is developed for calculating pulse dispersion vs wavelength for this generalized class of index profiles.
