We report on an original calibration technique of tunable in-fiber Bragg grating chromatic dispersion compensators. The technique allows easy detection and monitoring, in the optical domain, of the dispersion characteristics of the tunable compensator for simple control of its dispersion level. The method requires only a broadband optical source like an LED such that the dispersion level can be determined in an easy manner.
