Abstract

The authors report measurements of group velocity dispersion in photonic crystal fibre using low coherence techniques. The results confirm theoretical predictions that photonic crystal fibre, unlike conventional step-index fibre, can exhibit anomalous waveguide dispersion while remaining singlemode. This allows the design of singlemode fibres with zero dispersion points at wavelengths much shorter than is possible in standard fibre. © IEE 1999.
