Abstract

We propose and demonstrate a compact tunable optical dispersion compensation (TODC) device with a 100 GHz free spectral range capable of mitigating chromatic dispersion impairments. The TODC is based on longitudinal movement of a waveguide grating router, resulting in chromatic dispersion compensation of ± 1000 ps / nm . We employed our TODC device for compensating 42.8 Gbit / sec differential phase-shifting keying signal, transmitted over 50 km fiber with a 2 dB power penalty at 10 9 .
