Material dispersion is a function of the source spectral width. Dispersion affect the transmission bandwidth: This dispersion limits both the bandwidth and the distance over which the information can be transmitted. Paschotta, tutorial on ” Passive Fiber Optics “, Part Give brief description of the losses to be counted in link design. Single mode fibers also exhibit the highest possible bandwidth.

Signal degradation occurs due to different values of group delay for each individual mode at a single frequency. Explain the time domain inter modal and frequency domain intermodal dispersion measurement with the help of test set up diagram.

Intramodal dispersion – Wikipedia

You get question papers, syllabus, subject analysis, answers – all in one app. The total dispersion present in single mode fibers may be minimized by trading material intrammodal waveguide properties depending on the wavelength of operation.


In a fiber three distinct types of distortion are observed: The types are intramodal and intermodal dispersion.

Multimode waveguide dispersion is generally small compared to material dispersion. Chromatic dispersion [ edit ] In silica, the index of refraction is dependent upon wavelength. As the modes propagate along the fiber, light energy distributed among the modes is delayed by different amounts.

Fiber optics Optics stubs.

This optics-related article is a stub. Material dispersion occurs because the spreading of a light pulse is dependent on the wavelengths’ interaction with the refractive index of the fiber core. Intermodal or modal dispersion causes the input light pulse to spread. It is the pulse spreading due to the dispersive properties of material. Write a short note on measurement of numerical aperture. dixpersion

Intramodal dispersion

Intramodal Dispersion Intramodal, or chromatic, dispersion depends primarily on fiber materials. Explain the link design for optical communication system.

The first type is material dispersion. As a pulse spreads, energy is overlapped. You can help Wikipedia by expanding it. Since this phenomenon is wavelength dependent and group velocity is a function of wavelength, it is also called as group velocity dispersion GVD. The modes of a light pulse that enter the fiber at one time exit the fiber a different times.


Waveguide dispersion is usually neglected. When the light pulse enters fiber it is breakdown into small pulses carried by individual modes. Dispersion is the broadening of actual time-width of the pulse due to material properties and imperfections. Therefore different wavelengths will travel down an optical fiber at different velocities.

This condition is shown in figure In fiber-optic communicationan intramodal dispersionis a category of dispersion that occurs within a single mode optical fiber. In silica, the index of refraction is dependent optjcal wavelength. Write short note on: Dispersion caused by multipath propagation of light energy is referred to as intermodal dispersion. Therefore, single mode fibers exhibit the lowest amount of total dispersion.

In digital transmission, we use light pulse to dlspersion bit 1 and no pulse for bit 0.

As pulse travels down the fiber, dispersion causes pulse spreading. How does dispersion affect the transmission B.

What is this condition called?
