Abstract

We demonstrate a method for dispersion slope compensation of a conversion/dispersion-based optical delay to enable 100Gb/s operation based on a spatial light modulator and fiber Bragg gratings. A continuous delay of up to 3.6μs for 100, 80, and 20Gb/s differential quadrature phase-shift-keyed (DQSPK) and 50, 40, and 10Gb/s differential phase-shift-keyed (DPSK) waveforms is shown. A time-delay bit-rate product of ~360,000 for 100Gb/s DQPSK with wavelength-maintaining operation is achieved.
