Paper Abstract

We present theoretical calculations for chromatic dispersion, splice loss, macrobending loss and microbending loss in single-mode fluoride fibers designed to give optimum performance for future long distance communication systems in the 1.5 to 2.9 μm wavelength region. It is shown that these fibers offer dramatic improvements over silica fibers,even when compared to dispersion-flattened silica fibers.
