Paper Abstract

Dispersion in optical fibers and rise time in electro-optic components are very important parameters in the design of high speed optical communication systems. Dispersion parameter is used to determine the bandwidth capability of the optical fiber. Rise time parameter is used to estimate the bandwidth capacity of the overall transmission system comprising transmitter fiber and receiver. Both dispersion and rise time parameters are treated in isolation in technical literature. An approximate relation between these two parameters in conjunction with the bandwidth estimation has been derived and presented in the paper.
