Dispersion in chiral optical fibres

R. C. Qiu, I-Tai Lu

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Through an example, for the first time it is theoretically shown that introducing chirality to the core of an optical fibre can change its modal dispersion, including its waveguide dispersion characteristics, drastically, and thus reduce the overall chromatic dispersion in a certain wavelength range. This may provide a novel approach to modifying and managing the chromatic dispersion of a fibre.
