Abstract

LP<sub>01</sub>–LP<sub>02</sub> mode converters based on UV-written intracore gratings have been fabricated for chromatic-dispersion compensation. The mode converters operate in transmission at wavelengths near 150 nm with spectral bandwidths of 14–25 nm and coupling efficiencies of as much as 90%. A large negative dispersion of -335 ps/(nm km) is obtained for a compensator consisting of the mode converter and a 1490-m-long few-mode fiber. The compensator shows negative dispersion over a wavelength region of 5 nm. Its figure of merit is estimated to be 370 ps/(nm dB).
