Paper Abstract

The impact of cascaded CFBGs delay ripple for dispersion compensation has been analyzed. The experimental results show that the overall penalty was proportional either to the number or to the square root of the number of CFBGs employed along the link. The delay ripple of the overall CFBGs fluctuates, and the overall CFBGs reflectivity was not simply additive but was related to the placement of the CFBG and line amplifier gain. For the first time, the experimental results of dispersion compensation for a 2-×10-Gb/s, 1000-km WDM system using self-made CFBGs with less than 1-dB power penalty for each channel have been achieved.
