Today, we can achieve even 0.16dB per kilometer. It is almost nothingwhen compared to the classical electri-cal cables. However, there is yet another factorinfluencing the maximum useful lengthof a fiber optic cable. This is chromaticdispersion. To explain it in simple terms– various light rays in a fiber have a dif-ferent propagation time what distortsthe shape of the impulses carrying digi-tal data. Dispersion puts a limit on themaximum useful bit rate that can betransmitted in a given cable. Disper-sion is less painful in single mode fiber 30-60 nm wide. Laser diodes that pro- cal current.
