Description/Abstract

Chirped fibre gratings are of particular interest for compensating the dispersion (~17ps/nm.km @ 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.
