Evaluation of material dispersion in low-loss phosphosilicate-core optical fibres

Luther-Davies, B., Payne, D.N. and Gambling, W.A. (1975) Evaluation of material dispersion in low-loss phosphosilicate-core optical fibres Optics Communications, 13, (1), pp. 84-88. (doi:10.1016/0030-4018(75)90164-9).

Record type: Article


A method is described for the measurement of material dispersion in the core of an optical fibre, over a wide wavelength range. The method is relatively insensitive to the pulse dispersion caused by group delay differences between modes in the fibre. It is found that the dispersion of phosphosilicate core material is no greater than that of fused silica and is independent of composition over the range measured.
