Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a compact tunable optical dispersion compensation (TODC) device with a 100GHz free spectral range capable of mitigating chromatic dispersion impairments. The TODC is based on longitudinal movement of a waveguide grating router, resulting in chromatic dispersion compensation of ±1000ps/nm. We employed our TODC device for compensating 42.8Gbit/sec differential phase-shifting keying signal, transmitted over 50km fiber with a 2dB power penalty at 109.

CD compensation results. (a) Group delay versus frequency. Linear slopes are observed, corresponding to eight different dispersion values between 700 and 1100 ps / nm . (b) Transmissivity versus frequency. Spectral narrowing is observed for increasing departures from zero dispersion. Passband and dispersion settings are repeated at 100 GHz FSR.
