Abstract

We propose a purely phase-sampled Bragg grating for dispersion and dispersion slope compensation by introducing a chirp in the grating period and coupling coefficient. The bandwidth of all reflected channels can be equalized by chirping the sampling period at the same time. We show that a trade-off exists between the linearity of dispersion slope and the equalization of reflection channel bandwidths and discuss how the values of the coupling coefficients can be optimized in practice to improve the device performance.
