Abstract: 

In this paper we present a study on the dispersion characteristics in the suspended-core optical fibers made of borosilicate of NC21A glass infiltrated with water. Replacement of air with water results in dramatic improvement of the dispersion characteristics in the fibers, valuable in the process of supercontinuum generation. A near-zero flat dispersion can be achieved in the anomalous or normal dispersion range for various diameters of the core.
