Non-zero dsf

The leaf singlemode non-zero dispersion-shifted optical fiber has a larger effective area than standard non-zero dispersion-shifted fiber, according to the manufacturer. The larger effective area reduces light intensity, allowing more power to be pumped into the fiber. Applications for the fiber include medium- to long-distance networks that use high-output-power erbium-doped fiber amplifiers and multichannel dwdm technology and have 1550-nm design requirements. Systems using the fibers require fewer amplifiers and compensators than an upgraded system using standard singlemode fiber.
