A nonzero dispersion shifted fiber design based on hole-assisted lightguide fiber is presented. The proposed fiber has low dispersion slope around 0.01 ps / nm 2 - km and small negative dispersion values over the wavelength range from 1530 to 1620 nm . It can be used as a transmission medium for a long-haul dense wavelength-division-multiplexed system.
