Paper Abstract

Polarization mode dispersion can decrease the performance of the fiber-optic transmission seriously. Thus the compensation of Polarization mode dispersion is a critical issue in fiber optics. In this paper, a novel Polarization mode dispersion compensator is suggested and demonstrated based on a special-design fiber Bragg grating. A polarization mode dispersion compensation grating with 10-156ps dynamical span and flat-top response is first reported based on the combination of reconstruction algorithm and the equivalent-chirp method. A 10-Gb/s system experiment using the tunable PMD compensator shows the power penalty of BER at is about 1.2dBwhen the PMD of the system is 60ps.
