A power-efficient, tunable dynamic chromatic dispersion compensation (DC) fiber Bragg grating device was analyzed in a nonlinear 20 Gb/s single-channel nonreturn-to-zero system with less than 1 dB of power penalty over its entire bandwidth. The device provides the ability to adjust the DC in a dynamic fashion to maintain optimum system performance under nonlinear transmission conditions over a 17 dB variation in launch power. Incorporation of such a device in system receivers has the capability to optimize dispersion maps and reduce power penalties associated with the power-dependent nonlinear transmission impairments, both of which will become increasingly important as span distances and bit rates increase.
