Abstract

The advent of erbium-doped fibre amplifiers makes optical fibre transmission in the 1.55µm wavelength window very attractive. However, with the large amounts of standard non-dispersion shifted fibres (NDSF) already installed, high bit rate transmission is restricted by the large dispersion of these fibres at 1.55µm, unless compensating techniques are used. A number of approaches have been put forward to address this issue, such as dispersion compensating fibre, mid-point spectral inversion, dispersion-supported transmission, solitons, and chirped fibre Bragg gratings. Of these, fibre gratings are attractive as they are passive, linear devices, highly dispersive yet compact and relatively easy to fabricate in large numbers. In recent years, progress in the use of fibre grating-based compensation for 10 Gbit/s transmission has been rapid, with distances reported from 160km, 220km, 270km, 400km and most recently to 540 km. In this work, we demonstrate that 10 Gbit/s transmission up to 700 km of NDSF is achievable with a single 10 cm long chirped fibre grating in combination with a reduced bandwidth phase-alternating duobinary transmitter.
