Limiting bandwidth of a glass-fibre transmission line

Gambling, W.A. and Laybourn, P.J.R. (1970) Limiting bandwidth of a glass-fibre transmission line Electronics Letters, 6, (21), pp. 661-662. (doi:10.1049/el:19700457).

Record type: Article


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.
