Dispersion-Compensating Fiber DCF-DCM

Fiberroad Technology Co. optical compensation function with slope dispersion compensation for standard single-mode fiber can DCM (G.652) were dispersion and dispersion slope compensation broad band in the C-band, allowing the system to optimize residual dispersion. In the dispersion compensation value of 1545nm wavelength dispersion can reach -2070ps / nm.

The DCMs offer a high dispersion compensation level and a very low insertion loss penalty. They provide negative dispersion compensation over the full C-Band with possible distance extensions of up to 120 kilometers.

Since dispersion is inevitable in optical fibers, dispersion-compensating fibers, such as those sold on this page, can be incorporated into optical systems. The overall dispersion of these fibers is opposite in sign and much larger in magnitude than that of standard fiber, so they can be used to cancel out or compensate the dispersion of standard single-mode fiber, such as a nonzero dispersion-shifted fiber. A negative dispersion slope enables effective cancellation of dispersion over a larger wavelength range since the dispersion slope of standard fiber is usually positive. Generally, a short length of dispersion-compensating fiber is spliced into a longer length of standard fiber to compensate for dispersion, as in the example below Product Highlights
