Abstract
A simple and accurate method for measuring the chromatic dispersion of long spans of single-mode fiber in the vicinity of the minimum-dispersion wavelength is described. Agreement with Nd-YAG/Raman measurements is better than 0.5 ps/km nm within ± 30 nm of the wavelength of minimum-dispersion. Long-haul measurements on recently installed fiber-optic cables will be discussed.
