19 November 1985 Dispersion Measurements Of Single Mode And Multimode Optical Fibers
Author Affiliations +
Both time domain and frequency domain techniques have become well established for measuring the bandwidth of multimode optical fibers. The bandwidth of single mode fibers is much more source-dependent, however, and hence dispersion (or the zero dispersion wavelength) is used instead to characterize the information capacity. Dispersion can be determined by measuring pulse delay, phase shift, or fringe visibility as a function of wavelength.
