Abstract

Four non-zero-dispersion-shifted fibers with almost the same large effective area ( A eff ) and optimized dispersion properties are realized by novel index profile designing and modified vapor axial deposition and modified chemical vapor deposition processes. An A eff of greater than 71 μm 2 is obtained for the designed fibers. Three of the developed fibers with positive dispersion are improved by reducing the 1550 nm dispersion slope from 0.072 ps / nm 2 / km to 0.063 ps / nm 2 / km or 0.05 ps / nm 2 / km , increasing the 1550 nm dispersion from 4.972 ps / nm / km to 5.679 ps / nm / km or 7.776 ps / nm / km , and shifting the zero-dispersion wavelength from 1500 nm to 1450 nm . One of these fibers is in good agreement with G655D and G.656 fibers simultaneously, and another one with G655E and G.656 fibers; both fibers are beneficial to high-bit long-haul dense wavelength division multiplexing systems over S-, C-, and L-bands. The fourth developed fiber with negative dispersion is also improved by reducing the 1550 nm dispersion slope from 0.12 ps / nm 2 / km to 0.085 ps / nm 2 / km , increasing the 1550 nm dispersion from 4 ps / nm / km to 6.016 ps / nm / km , providing facilities for a submarine transmission system. Experimental measurements indicate that the developed fibers all have excellent optical transmission and good macrobending and splice performances.
