A simultaneous dispersion and dispersion-slope compensator based on a doubly sampled fiber Bragg grating (FBG) with 153 channels has been demonstrated, which is obtained by simultaneously chirping the period of the seed grating and the periods of the two sampling functions. These two sampling functions are optimized with the simulated annealing algorithm and the Gerchberg–Saxton iterative method. Moreover, the spectral inclination (in reflection) inherently due to the different magnitudes of the channel dispersion has been successfully equalized.
