Paper Abstract

We have given designs of a Small Residual Dispersion Fiber (SRDF) and a corresponding Dispersion Compensating Fiber (DCF), where the dispersion slopes of these fibers are so adjusted that a small length of the DCF will approximately compensate the accumulated dispersion in SRDF simultaneously at all wavelengths in the range of 1530 to 1565 nm (gain window of Erbium Doped Fiber Amplifiers). The maximum values of the effective dispersion and the slope of the effective dispersion in the wavelength range of 1530 to 1565 nm are approximately 0.08 ps/(km.nm) and approximately 0.01 ps/(km.nm2), respectively.
