Tunable dispersion compensating grating in a 10Gbit/s 100-220km step index fibre link

Laming, R.I., Robinson, N., Scrivener, P.L., Barcelos, S., Reekie, L., Tucknott, J.A. and Zervas, M.N. (1995) Tunable dispersion compensating grating in a 10Gbit/s 100-220km step index fibre link At QE12, United Kingdom. 04 - 08 Sep 1995.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Chirped fibre gratings are of particular interest for compensating the dispersion (~17ps/ @ 1.55µm) of installed step index (SI) fibre links since they are compact, low-loss, polarisation-insensitive and offer high negative-dispersion. In this paper we present a detailed investigation of the bandwidth-dispersion trade-off for a fixed (40mm) length tunable linearly-chirped fibre grating. In addition we demonstrate that such a grating can precisely compensate the dispersion in a 10Gbit/s transmission experiment for SI fibre lengths in the range 103-216km.
