Fibre Bragg gratings for dispersion compensation in optical communications.
In, Asia-Pacific Conference on Communications (APCC), Sydney, AU,
The main activities and recent developments towards the implementation of meter-long, high-performance fibre grating dispersion compensators in the Optoelectronics Research Centre, Southampton University are reviewed. Performance requirements of fibre-Bragg-gratings dispersion compensators and their impact on transmission systems will be discussed. We will report on the characteristics of continuously chirped FBGs capable of compensating linear and third-order dispersion over ~10nm bandwidth. Finally, system results using chirped FBGs as dispersion compensators will be given
