Abstract
Results of material dispersion measurements on multimode, graded-index, optical fibers are given. An rf phase shift technique was used. The measurement was repeated for several wavelengths over the spectral width of an LED source. Typically, an LED centered at 820 nm was useful from about 790 to 850 nm. Wavelength coverage can be extended further by using LED's with different central wavelengths. Material dispersion values for high-bandwidth fibers fell in the range 100 to 108 ps/(nm x km) at a wavelength of 825 nm.
