Paper Abstract

Chromatic dispersion is one of the relevant parameters which describes optical transmission systems by defining their bandwidth. It can be measured by determining the spectral group delay tG(λ) or τG - the group delay normalized with respect to the fiber length L. The measuring results are presented in an analytic form by a polynominal, the coefficients of which will be calculated by the method of the least square fit. The chromatic dispersion is the differential quotient dγG(λ)/dX. The group delay is not measured as an absolute value.
