Abstract

We develop a simple theory that relates the performance of an optical component to the variance of the amplitude of its phase ripple that has been weighted by the incoming signal spectrum. Comparisons of model predictions for chirped fiber gratings with 10-Gbit/s test-bed simulations and measurements agree.
