Abstract

This paper describes an adaptive dispersion equalizer (ADE) that uses an asynchronous dispersion-induced chirp monitor and the detailed study of the first demonstration of 160-Gb/s adaptive dispersion equalization. The device successfully equalized the dispersion change over a 40 °C temperature range (from 5 ° C to 45 °C) and the dispersion slope of an 80-km dispersion-shifted fiber (DSF). The ADE will enhance the feasibility of 160-Gb/s optical transmission systems.
