Pulse dispersion in glass fibres

Gambling, W.A., Payne, D.N. and Sunak, H.R.D. (1971) Pulse dispersion in glass fibres Electronics Letters, 7, (18), pp. 549-550. (doi:10.1049/el:19710371).

Record type: Article


Measurements indicate that pulses incident normally on the end of a cladded multimode fibre are broadened by less than 0.1 ns over a length of 20 m. The measured dispersions in lengths of 20 m and 35 m do not exceed 5 ps/m. However, with an angle of incidence of 17°, or with a defocused input beam, the pulses are broadened by 0.6 ns.
