<emphasis role="bold">Description</emphasis> Chromatic dispersion (CD) is a property of optical fiber (or optical component) that causes different wavelengths of light to propagate at different velocities. Since all light sources consist of a narrow spectrum of light (comprising of many wavelengths), all fiber transmissions are affected by chromatic dispersion to some degree. In addition, any signal modulatin…
