Abstract

The length dependence of group delay differences between orthogonally polarized modes has been investigated experimentally for real single-mode fibers ranging from 0. 1 km to 100 km. The mean group delay difference is a constant value of 0. 67 ps, over a length of more than 1 km. The mode coupling coefficient of random mode mixing which causes pulse broadening has been estimated to be 6. 13 multiplied by 10** minus **3 m** minus **1. A light pulse will broaden by 17 ps after traversing a 100 km-long fiber. This may restrict single-mode fiber systems to a bit rate of 10GHz for lengths over 150 km.
