It is virtually impossible to manufacture totally pure materials and the absorption spectrum of any impurities serves to modify that of the pure material. Finally in the interest of certain applications it is necessary and desirable to introduce further modifying agents or dopants to improve the performance of the optical core. Most optical fiber is manufactured using a base of pure silica (silicon dioxide – SiO2) which is doped with germanium and other materials to create an effective core structure.

Accordingly their use has required a larger core diameter, high NA fiber design to produce acceptable launch conditions. These fibers exhibit lower intermodal bandwidths and when combined with the wider spectrum of the LED also feature a lower level of intramodal bandwidth. The large core diameter, high NA fibers tend to exhibit higher levels of optical attenuation, which supports their use over short and medium distances, which in turn removes the need for the tremendously high bandwidths of the single mode systems.

25 Group refractive index and device spectra Optical fiber theory 45 Polarization mode dispersion Polarization mode dispersion or PMD, is a further type of bandwidth limiting dispersion that affects single mode fiber when operating at long distances and/or high bit rates. Single mode fiber supports two orthogonal polarizations of the original transmitted signal. Random variations in the refractive index along with non-circularity of the core leads to the two polarized modes travelling with different velocities and hence spreading out in time.
