Paper Abstract

A dispersion coefficient measurement of photonic crystal fiber by using white-light interferometry based technology is presented. A section of photonic crystal fiber (PCF) is fused in one arm of a Mach-Zehnder interferometer, and the relative phase, delay time and chromatic dispersion coefficient of PCF are calculated by sweeping the wavelength from 1525nm to 1565nm. A section of PCF with the length of 0.779m is measured and the experimental results are shown. The result indicates that the proposed method can measure the chromatic dispersion of PCFs with a reliable accuracy.
