Abstract

We experimentally demonstrate dispersion compensation using a silicon-based optical phase conjugator. We achieve simultaneous transmission of four dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) channels spaced at 100GHz and operating at 10Gbitss over 320km of standard fiber. The measured power penalty at bit error rate of 109 is less than 0.3dB.
