Paper Abstract

Theoretically based equations are obtained that relate the zero dispersion wavelength (λ0) and dispersion slope (S0) of a graded-index multimode fiber to the fiber's normalized refractive index difference (Δ). Comparison of these curves with empirical data on 32 spools of fiber shows good agreement between λ0 and Δ, but large scatter in So. These relations have proven useful in establishing typical ranges of chromatic dispersion performance for commercially available multimode fibers.
