Abstract

A novel multichannel dispersion compensator based on a strongly chirped sampled Bragg grating with phase shifts is demonstrated experimentally. With a single phase mask, various channel spacings and dispersion can be achieved by proper control of the sampling period and the phase shifts. A 100GHz channel-spacing compensator with a dispersion of 1000psnm and another 200GHz channel-spacing compensator with a dispersion of 500psnm are designed. As an example, a 40 channel, 100GHz channel-spacing compensator with a dispersion of 560psnm is fabricated. All the designs are based on one phase mask, thus showing the flexibility of our method.
