Paper Abstract

Both time domain and frequency domain techniques have become well established for measuring the bandwidth of multimode optical fibers. The bandwidth of single mode fibers is much more source-dependent, however, and hence dispersion (or the zero dispersion wavelength) is used instead to characterize the information capacity. Dispersion can be determined by measuring pulse delay, phase shift, or fringe visibility as a function of wavelength.
