Intermodal Dispersion

This optics-related article is a stub. The natural way of eliminating intermodal dispersion is to use fiber links based on single-mode fibersbut intermodal dispersion can also be minimized by using multimode fibers with a parabolic refractive index profile, where intermodal dispersion is minimized. The total dispersion present in anv mode fibers may be minimized by trading material and waveguide properties depending on the wavelength intermkdal operation. Since modes travel in different directions, some modes travel longer distances.

Paschotta, tutorial on ” Passive Fiber Optics “, Part Explain the link design for optical communication system. Explain the following terms related to optical laws: Nonlinearities of Fibers and Part Therefore different wavelengths will travel down an optical fiber at different velocities. Signal degradation occurs due to different values of group delay for each individual mode at a single frequency.


The pulse spreads because each mode propagates along the fiber at different speeds.

UNIT I Explain the intermodal and intramodal dispersion. What are

Download our mobile app and study on-the-go. In digital transmission, we use light pulse to transmit bit 1 and no pulse for bit 0. Explain the physical principle of PIN photo detector using schematic circuit diagram.

Intramodal Dispersion Intramodal, or chromatic, dispersion depends primarily on fiber materials. Explain the time domain inter modal and frequency domain intermodal dispersion measurement with the help of test set up diagram.

Since this phenomenon is wavelength dependent and group velocity is a function of wavelength, it is also called as group velocity dispersion GVD.

Material dispersion is a function of the source spectral width. Design and simulate a fiber optic system using dispersion-compensating fiber Dispersion is the broadening of actual time-width of the pulse due to material properties and imperfections. For full-text searches, use our search page. Multimode waveguide dispersion is generally small compared to material dispersion.

The fundamental dispersikn comes first, as it is the fastest. Sorry, we don’t have an intermoral for that keyword!

UNIT I Explain the intermodal and intramodal dispersion. What are

Material dispersion occurs because the spreading of a light pulse is dependent on the wavelengths’ interaction with the refractive index of the fiber core. What is this condition called? What are two main budget equations used for link design?


This dispersion limits both the bandwidth and the distance over which the information can be transmitted. Intramodal dispersion occurs intraomdal different colors of light travel through different materials and different waveguide structures at different speeds.

In order to avoid strong signal distortion, it is usually necessary to keep the pulses long enough to maintain a reasonable temporal overlap of components from different modes, and this unavoidably sets a limit on the data rate.

Write short note on the following a Fiber splicing b Fiber connectors 3. Intermodal or modal dispersion causes the input light pulse to spread.

In multimode fibers, waveguide dispersion and material dispersion are basically separate properties. Modal dispersion does not exist in single mode fibers. In a fiber three distinct types of distortion are observed: Engineering in your pocket Opticzl our mobile app and study on-the-go.
