Abstract

Dispersion management modules based on large effective area, relatively short high-order mode fibers are experimentally shown to have high input power threshold to stimulated Brillouin scattering. Theoretically, they behave similarly to the LP 01 mode of dispersion compensation fibers but with a larger effective area and shorter effective length. The resulting ∼5-dB higher threshold further strengthens the viability of full dispersion and slope compensation without significant input power limitation.
