We experimentally demonstrate dispersion compensation using a silicon-based optical phase conjugator. We achieve simultaneous transmission of four dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) channels spaced at 100 GHz and operating at 10 Gbits s over 320 km of standard fiber. The measured power penalty at bit error rate of 10 9 is less than 0.3 dB .
