As can be seen, there are two windows at which loss attains its minimum value in silica fibres. The first window is around 1300 nm (with a typical loss coefficient of <1 dB/km), where, fortunately (as we will see later), the material dispersion is negligible. 2 dB/km around 1550 nm. The second window has become extremely important in view of the availability of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers. 5 MODES OF STEP-INDEX FIBRE The modal analysis of an optical fibre allows us to understand its propagation characteristics, which play an extremely important role in the design of a fibre-optic communication system.

15) The waveguide parameter V (which also depends on the operating wavelength λ0) is an extremely important quantity characterizing an optical fibre. For guided modes n22 k02 < β2 < n12 k02 , therefore both U and W are real. 16) V2 21 Modes in Optical Fibres Thus, W = V√b and U = V√(1 − b). 10, we see that guided modes are characterized by 0 < b < 1. g. 18 will give us universal curves describing the dependence of b (and therefore of U and W) on V. For a given value of l, there will be a finite number of solutions and the mth solution (m = 1, 2, 3, …) is referred to as the LPlm mode.

C. E. Peterson and A. Carnevale, Bell Syst. Tech. , 60, 583, 1981. material dispersion is only 50 ps/km of the fibre. The very small value of Δτm is because the group velocity is approximately constant around λ0 = 1300 nm. Indeed, the wavelength λ0 = 1270 nm is usually referred to as the zero material dispersion wavelength, and it is because of such low material dispersion that the optical communication systems shifted their operation to around λ0 = 1300 nm. The optical communication systems in operation today use laser diodes (LDs) with λ0 ≈ 1550 nm having a spectral width of about 2 nm.
