Abstract

Microstructured optical fibers (MOFs) with small hole-to-hole spacing and large airholes are designed to compensate the anomalous dispersion and the dispersion slope of single-mode fibers. The geometrical parameters that characterize triangular MOFs are chosen to optimize the fiber length and the compensation over a wide wavelength range. A proper design of the photonic crystal fiber geometry allows us to achieve dispersion values of approximately −1700 ps nm<sup>−1</sup> km<sup>−1</sup> at 1550 nm and to compensate the dispersion of standard fibers within ±0.5 ps nm<sup>−1</sup> km<sup>−1</sup> over a 100-nm range. The MOF dispersion properties have been studied by means of a numerical simulator for modal analysis based on the finite-element method.
