Chromatic Dispersion in Optical Fibers

Posted by Kevin Miller on Wed, Aug 24, 2011 @ 12:08 PM

Chromatic dispersion is a phenomenon that is an important factor in fiber optic communications.  It is the result of the different colors, or wavelengths, in a light beam arriving at their destination at slightly different times.  The result is a spreading, or dispersion, of the on-off light pulses that convey digital information.  Special care must be taken to compensate for this dispersion so that the optical fiber delivers its maximum capacity.
