Abstract

Optical equalization was suggested as a means for increasing the bandwidth of optical fibre communication links when non-optimal graded-index fibre profiles are available. In this paper it is shown that by proper choice of the length as well as of the index of the compensating fibre one can significantly increase the bandwidth capability of the link. An upper limit of this improvement is derived, which is much larger than that obtained with alternating fibres of equal lengths.
