When drawing an optical fiber from a preform, positive and negative dispersion sections of an optical fiber are provided, respectively, with target glass diameters different from each other, whereby the positive and negative dispersion sections attain their respective desirable values of chromatic dispersion. Also, the positive and negative dispersion sections and a transient section therebetween are provided, respectively, with values of control constant different from each other, which are used to converge the measured glass diameter to said target diameter, for adjusting the drawing speed, whereby the transient section is shortened. Alternatively, the positive and negative dispersion sections of the optical fiber are provided with respective target drawing speeds different from each other, whereby the transient section is shortened.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
