Hi, Everyone I have a question that what is meant by dispersion slope and what is the value of dispersion slope of the dispersion compensated fiber? is this negative or positive?

      Dear abu Bakar,
      Generally, dispersion slope of the second order dispersion is 3rd order dispersion and so on.
      I encourage you to read the first chapter in Agrawal book the part related to the chromatic dispersion. In this part you will understand the origin of the dispersion expansion and dispersion orders.

      thanks

      dispersion slope is the rate at which dispersion varies along the wavelength of an optical pulse.Its value can be positive or negative which may be adjusted by fiber manufacturers
