Tunable Third Order Dispersion Compensator Using Nonlinearly Chirped Polymer Fiber Bragg Grating
We propose a design method for tunable third-order dispersion compensation using nonlinearly chirped polymer fiber Bragg grating (FBG) made in fiber tapers. Simulation provides a very large dispersion tuning range from -185.5 ps/nm2 (at strain 0.1% and effective grating length, Leff, of 3 cm) to -0.62 ps/nm2 (at strain 1%, Leff = 1 cm).
