Optical Dispersion Compensation Glossary

    Conventional single-mode fibers are characterized by large (~ 5-6 μm) core radii and zero-dispersion occur around 1300 nm. Operation around λ0 at 1300 nm thus leads to very low pulse broadening, but the attenuation is higher than at 1550nm. 

    Thus, to exploit the low-loss window around 1550nm, new fiber designs were developed that had zero-dispersion around the 1550 nm wavelength region.
