Unformatted text preview: 108 Propagation of Signals in Optical Fiber The system impact of dispersion and nonlinearities and their interplay are discussed in detail in [KK97, Chapter 8]. Information on the new types of fibers that have been introduced to combat dispersion and nonlinearities can be found on the Web pages of the manufacturers: Corning and OFS (formerly Lucent Technology’s Optical Fiber Solutions business and now part of Furukawa Electric). Much of the data on the new fiber types for this chapter was gathered from these Web pages. The ITU has standardized three fiber types. ITU-T recommendation (standard) G.652 specifies the characteristics of standard single-mode fiber, G.653 that of DSF, and G.655 that of NZ-DSF. ISO has standards for multimode fiber [ISO02]. There are a number of references on pho- tonic crystal fiber, for example, [Rus03, Rus06, LN08]. An overview and historical perspective on waveguides can be found in [DK08] A nice treatment of the basics of solitons appears in [KBW96]. Issues in the design of WDM soliton communication systems are discussed at length in [KK97, Chapter...
