Abstract

We propose a novel delay element for polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensation by employing a tunable high-birefringence linearly chirped grating. The device can adjust differential group delay in a linearly continuous way and its performance is demonstrated by compensating 10-Gb/s signal with the first-order PMD. The tradeoff between PMD compensation capability of the device and the power penalty caused by the chromatic dispersion of the grating has also been studied.
