A Study on the Considering of the Non-Linear Phenomenon of Refractive Index in Material Dispersion

  • Abhijit Sinha

In high speed data communication through optical fiber the role of material dispersion is very much important. In all most all treatments of data communication we do not use the non-linearity in material dispersion. Here in this communication we give a special effort on the consideration of non-linearity in material dispersion and hence the changes of time width because of such dispersion is observed.

Key words
