Paper Abstract

The chromatic dispersion of optical fibers degrades the transmission characteristics of optical communication systems. In high-speed WDM systems both dispersion compensation and higher order dispersion (dispersion slope) compensation are necessary. In this paper, a new dispersion slope compensator based on tapered fiber gratings is proposed. The dispersion slope compensator consists of two linearly tapered fibers with uniform Bragg gratings.
