Paper Abstract

Single-mode fibers of pure silica core and F-doped clads exhibiting a low dispersion over a wide wavelength range are discussed and numerical results of some propagation characteristics of dispersion-compensated nulticlad fibers are presented. In computations, the very accurate numerical methods and extended precision arithmetic were used. The calculations include the propagation constant, and the dispersion coefficient versus a wavelength, cut-off frequencies of the first mode, a power and field distribution of the fundamental HE11 mode, the spot size. Tolerance of the geometry of the fiber and concentrations of the F-dopants in pure silica are analysed showing numerically what is an influence of them on a dispersion characteristic. Some results to be discussed are directly applicable to the designing of a truly single-mode F-doped silica fiber.
