Abstract

The wavelength of minimum dispersion of monomode fibers is shown to depend on the refractive properties of the core glass as well as of the cladding glass and on the fiber parameter V. Minimum-dispersion wavelengths in the 1.27-μm < λ < 1.6-μm range are readily obtained with fibers made of fused silica and fused silica doped with GeO2 and B2O3, thus providing a wide choice of operating wavelengths for high-capacity communication systems.
