A largely tunable chirped fiber Bragg grating (CFBG)-based dispersion compensator with fixed center wavelength is demonstrated. Tunable dispersion ranging from 178 to 2126 ps/nm, corresponding to a large range of 3-db bandwidth from 0.42 to 5.04 nm, is realized by using a 10 cm-long CFBG with an original bandwidth of 1.61 nm. The variation in center wavelength is less than 0.2 nm.
