Minimization of the chromatic dispersion over a broad wavelength range in a single-mode optical fiber

Abstract
The effective refractive-index as a function of vacuum wavelength is approximated

by Lagrange interpolation polynomials. The root-mean-square value

of the chromatic dispersion is then calculated analytically. It is demonstrated

that use of fourth degree polynomials is far more efficient than use of second

degree polynomials. The rms-value of the chromatic dispersion over the wavelength

range [1.25 µm, 1.60 µm] is calculated and minimized for step-index

fibers, triangular-index fibers, and α-power fibers. The full vector solution of

Maxwell’s equations is used. It is demonstrated that the approximate model

of the refractive-index, used in this paper and in other papers,... (More)

in the rms-value which is not negligible when designing dispersion-flattened

fibers. (Less)
