Abstract
The impact of physical parameters such as grating length, effective index of grating, and apodization on the performance of 5×5 reconfigurable multiwavelength optical cross connect based on tunable fiber Bragg grating and optical circulator in DWDM system with 0.8-nm channel spacing at 15×10  Gbps is evaluated. It is observed that least BER is achieved at the minimum input transmission power with specific values of grating length, effective index of grating, and apodization change of a T-FBG. It shows that BER increases as the values of T-FBG grating length, effective index of grating, and apodization decrease. The data can be transmitted over a distance of 60 km in the presence of fiber nonlinearities without optical amplifier and dispersion compensating techniques.
