Zero-dispersion Slope


In single-mode fiber, the rate of change of dispersion with respect to wavelength, at the fibers zero-dispersion wavelength.

 


Zero-dispersion Wavelength (l0)


In a single-mode optical fiber, the wavelength at which material dispersion and waveguide dispersion cancel one another. The wavelength of maximum bandwidth in the fiber. Also called zero-dispersion point.

 


Zipcord


A two-fiber cable consisting of two single fiber cables having conjoined jackets. A zipcord cable can be easily divided by slitting and pulling the conjoined jackets apart.
