It is theoretically demonstrated that a succession of four unchirped gratings, ~20 mm long, induces a negative chromatic dispersion in transmission of −100 ps/nm over a 0.2-nm bandwidth, with a power loss below 1 dB. The stability of the proposed arrangement is also considered and found to be within today’s technology.
