Abstract
The simple structure of a tunable polarization mode dispersion (PMD) compensator based on a cantilever beam and a high-birefringence linearly chirped fiber Bragg grating is proposed. A cantilever structure is used to introduce a linear strain gradient on the grating, and we can tune the compensated differential group delay (DGD) at a fixed signal wavelength just by changing the displacement at the free end of the beam. Based on numerical simulations, the performance of the cantilever structure as a PMD compensator is assessed for 10-Gbits/s nonreturn-to-zero transmission systems with a large DGD. With this compensator, a significant improvement of system performance can be achieved in the eye pattern of a received signal.
