Device Characterizations and Chromatic Dispersion Measurement in Optical Fibres
This chapter presents the measurement results obtained from the experiments that have been discussed in the previous chapter. The critical parameters such as wavelength, frequency and DC biasing voltage give different results based on assigned values. External modulator response also limits the dynamic range of these parameters. Since the effect of each parameter on dispersion can be studied separately, in each section of this chapter, each variable parameter will be measured, while the other parameter was made constant. In addition, analysis of multiple critical measurements will be presented to relate the experiment result with the theory.
