Paper Abstract

Advanced optical fibers enable high-capacity transmission for long reach systems and help to retain margin for networking. To do this they must support broadband operation, reduce nonlinear impairments, enable distributed gain and simplify networking. Here we describe fibers that incorporate dispersion management to extend span length and system reach over a broad bandwidth by compensating dispersion slope, reducing nonlinear impairments, and optimizing noise figure.
