An amplified tunable dispersion compensator has been unleashed for 10-Gbps optical networking designs. The compensator integrates an Erbium-doped waveguide amplifier with tunable dispersion compensation capabilities. Designers can use this device in 10-Gb systems with up to eight selectable 50 GHz channels in C-band, each tunable up to 1000 ps/nm.
