Dispersion-shifted segmented-core single-mode designs with low sensitivity of the zero-dispersion wavelength to the cutoff-wavelength variation have been identified. Dispersion, spot size, and bending-loss results on such dispersion-shifted fibers with the highest cutoff wavelength reported to date are presented.
