Description/Abstract

The effect of natural dispersion on the bandwidth of a glass-fibre transmission line is analysed. It is shown that, if typical optical glasses are used, the limiting pulse rate, in both cladded fibres and those having a parabolic radial variation of refractive index, is not likely to exceed 10 Gbit/s over a distance of 10 km. The effect of the optical breakdown strength of the glass is also considered.
