Abstract

We report for what is believed to be the first time the use of transmissive fiber Bragg grating–based Fabry–Perot etalons for tunable dispersion compensation and dispersion-slope compensation. The resulting device has a number of advantages, such as low cost, ease of fabrication, full optical fiber compatibility, and simplicity.
