Dispersion compensation of 10 Gbits/s NRZ signal using two-mode injection locking in FP-LD was demonstrated. Our preliminary results show that this technique is able to compensate 10 Gbits/s NRZ signal after propagation over 100 km of standard single-mode fiber (total dispersion of 1700 ps/nm). Experimental demonstration of dispersion compensation of two 10 Gbits/s NRZ signals simultaneously using one FP-LD will also be presented.
