Abstract

Chromatic dispersion of two orthogonal polarization modes has been investigated for various kinds of PANDA fibers. In high-birefringence fiber with modal birefringence B = 7.9 × 10−4, the zero-dispersion wavelength for the x-polarization mode (λ0x = 1.307 μm) was 6 nm shorter than that for the y-polarization mode (λ0y = 1.313 μm). Chromatic dispersion of the fiber at 1.55-μm wavelength was σx = 18.3 psec/km-nm and σy = 16.1 psec/km-nm for the x- and y-polarization modes, respectively.
