Abstract

Single-mode dispersion compensating fiber designs with absolute dispersion values of greater than 100 ps/(nm km) are described. A multiclad fiber with a triangular refractive-index profile in the core gives a dispersion of −250 ps/(nm km), resulting in a 15:1 compensation scheme. All fiber designs use only the fundamental LP01 mode for dispersion compensation and can account for first- and second-order dispersion effects.
