Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a compact tunable optical dispersion compensation (TODC) device with a 100 GHz free spectral range capable of mitigating chromatic dispersion impairments. The TODC is based on longitudinal movement of a waveguide grating router, resulting in chromatic dispersion compensation of ±1000ps=nm. We employed our TODC device for compensating 42:8Gbit=sec differential phase-shifting keying signal, transmitted over 50km fiber with a -2 dB power penalty at 10-9.
