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.
