Chromatic Dispersion in Single mode Fibers 5

Chromatic Dispersion in Single mode Fibers

Dispersion limits the transmission distance in optical communications. In simple terms, the broadening of the pulse as it travels along the length of an optical fiber is called dispersion. In fiber-optic measurements, dispersion is often called Chromatic dispersion or short CD. Chromatic Dispersion is variation in the speed of propagation of a light signal with wavelength. Currently installed fiber-optic network spans are limited to around 80 to 100 kilometers that are penalized by dispersion.
