Description/Abstract

The dispersion characteristics of linearly chirped fibre gratings have been studied systematically. It is shown that in order to compensate the linear dispersion along 100km of STF, over a certain FWHM bandwidth, the required fibre-grating length is 17.7cm/nm. Compensation of the linear dispersion of 100km over a FWHM bandwidth of 5nm, require a fibre grating of 88.5cm. On the other hand, perfect recompression of 10ps optical pulses over a distance of 100km require a fibre grating of about 22cm
