E. dispersion due to timing differences between modes. 15) ⌬T (s/km) Which suggests that no more than about three individual short pulses may be injected within a given dispersion period, otherwise the received data will be disordered to the point of unacceptability. km Performance figures such as these represent a significant shortfall against the enormous bandwidths promised by optical fiber technology. As the primary technical mission was for improvements in bandwidth then the 34 Fiber Optic Cabling refinement of processing techniques was totally dominated by developments in this area.

In the mid-1990s a new style of laser was developed, known as a VCSEL, or vertical cavity surface emitting laser. VCSELs are currently available at 850 nm and can inject gigabit datastreams into multimode fiber. 3z) which was published in 1998: 850 nm VCSELs will also be used in Fiber Channel, ATM and other Ethernet physical layer presentations. A single mode 1300 nm VCSEL is currently working its way through the laboratories of the world, a device that could totally transform the economics of using single mode fiber in campus and premises cabling.

12 shows a typical attenuation profile for a silica-based fiber. Three operational wavelength windows are highlighted which have long been established as the bases for fiber optic data transmission. The first window, centred around 850 nm, was the original operating wavelength for the early telecommunications systems and is now the main system wavelength for data and military communications systems. The second window at 1300 nm evolved for high-speed telecommunications both because of reduced levels of attenuation and, as will be discussed later in this chapter, because of the low levels of intramodal dispersion.
