Abstract(in English) Chromatic dispersion management is one of the most important technologies for high-bit-rate dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) systems. Especially, the transmission quality in 40-Gb/s systems is highly sensitive to chromatic dispersion. As for compensating chromatic dispersion fixed values, dispersion compensating fiber (DCF) is one of the practical solutions. However, DCF could not fully meet the tight dispersion tolerances required by 40-Gb/s systems. In 40-Gb/s systems, chromatic dispersion should be managed taking account of chromatic dispersion variation in the transmission line induced by daily or seasonal temperature fluctuations, Tunable dispersion compensators (TDCs) are the solution for precise control of chromatic dispersion in transmission lines. Various kinds of chromatic compensators have been demonstrated, however, no multichannel chromatic dispersion compensator, which can independently control each channel, has been reported. In this paper, a novel multichannel tunable dispersion compensator based on micro electro mechanical systems (MEMS) and diffraction grating technologies is proposed and demonstrated.
