The zero dispersion wavelength, lo, for single mode fibers is modelled and investigated for silica, aluminosilicate and vycor glasses. Both step index and graded index fibers are considered. The used model depends mainly on the temperature dependent Sellmeier coefficients of the core refractive index. Temperature effects on λo are investigated for a wide range (-100 °C to +100 °C) as well as the fiber parameters including the core radius and the relative refractive index difference.

    A light signal propagating in an optical fiber is subject to a variety of ways in which it can get distorted. Many of these are based on different propagation velocities for different parts of the signal, resulting in dispersion. After such distortion, there is a risk that the signal arrives at...
