The main goal in this paper is to design single-mode optical fibers for DWDM networks, which are used today in rapid communications. These networks require low dispersion in a wide range of wavelengths.  So, in this paper, multi-layer optical fibers with low dispersion value and flat dispersion slope in wavelength range of 1.5-1.6µm) are designed, using optimization algorithms.
