Fibre Bragg gratings for dispersion compensation in optical communications

Zervas, M.N., Laming, R.I., Cole, M.J., Durkin, M., Ibsen, M. and Ennser, K. (1997) Fibre Bragg gratings for dispersion compensation in optical communications At Asia-Pacific Conference on Communications (APCC), Australia.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


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
