Zero mode dispersion in single-mode fibres
W.A.Gambling, H.Matsumura, and C.M.Ragdale
Near cutoff the loss of the LP11, mode in cladded optical fibres becomes very high in the presence of even slight bends. Single-mode operation can thus be achieved with zero-mode dispersion as well as zero material dispersion, thus promising enormously large bandwidths.
