Abstract

Typical light-emitting diodes have a spectral width between 300 Å and 500 Å. This is sufficient to cause significant pulse broadening as a result of material dispersion in a long optical glass fiber. An experiment was performed to measure the magnitude of this effect in a fiber of 1-km length. The experiment measures the average intensity transfer function of the fiber.
