Intermodal dispersion at 0.85 μm, and intramodal dispersion in the range 0.75 to 1.5 μm has been measured on single-mode fibres for use at 1.3 μm. Results in good agreement with theoretical predictions show the fibres to be undercompensated at 0.85 μm. The pulse spreading at 0.85 μm in such fibres owing to intramodal dispersion is 0.24 ns/km for a 3 nm linewidth source
