dispersion optimized fiber (DOF)

A dispersion optimized fiber (DOF) is a glass fiber with optimized dispersion. Such a glass fiber consists of the core glass surrounded by two glass layers, a cladding glass and an outer glass layer. The individual glass layers have different refractive indices with which the dispersion is compensated. The thickness of the individual glass layers is determined according to the technical requirements of the glass fiber.
