Single-Mode Optical Fibre Dispersions and the Physics Phenomenon Involved
This chapter reviews the literature concerning types of dispersion caused by a single-mode optical fibre. As a starting point, Sect. 2.2.1 reviews the single-mode fibre characteristics in one glance. Section 2.2.2 lays out the theory on group-velocity dispersion (GVD). Section 2.2.3 subsequently shows how polarization of light in a waveguide medium leads to dispersion. Section 2.2.4 explains the basics of dispersion on a waveguide. Section 2.2.5 illustrates that a material can also take dispersion into account. Finally, all the information given in this chapter is summarized in Sect. 2.3.
