Zero-dispersion Slope

In single-mode fiber, the rate of change of dispersion with respect to wavelength, at the fibers zero-dispersion wavelength.


Zero-dispersion Wavelength (l0)

In a single-mode optical fiber, the wavelength at which material dispersion and waveguide dispersion cancel one another. The wavelength of maximum bandwidth in the fiber. Also called zero-dispersion point.



A two-fiber cable consisting of two single fiber cables having conjoined jackets. A zipcord cable can be easily divided by slitting and pulling the conjoined jackets apart.
