Abstract

Conventional dispersion compensation requires erbium-doped fiber amplifiers with high pump power to compensate for excess losses introduced by the dispersion-compensating fiber. We report and demonstrate an optimized single-pump amplifier configuration with a pump power penalty of less than 5% when integrated with a fiber Bragg grating dispersion compensator. The system is capable of compensating 100 ‚ÄČ km of G.652 single-mode fiber.
