Since TeraXion’s inception in 2000, our close relationships with our customers allowed us to develop a forward-looking expertise and quickly propelled us into a leadership position in the TODC market. With fiber Bragg grating (FBG)-based dispersion compensators used in legacy and high-end DWDM networks, TeraXion has established itself as a reliable provider of high-performance optical components for 10 Gb/s, 40 Gb/s and 100 Gb/s networks.

TeraXion's expertise in FBG-based technology was captured in the market’s first and only slope-matched tunable dispersion compensator.

As optical communication systems evolve from direct to coherent detection, TeraXion’s innovations allow once again our customers to benefit from various technologies including tunable narrow-linewidth lasers, as well as FBG-based optical filters and dispersion emulators/compensators.

Cascadability of TeraXion's FBG-based dispersion compensators

Fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) were proposed for compensating the chromatic dispersion accumulated over the transport fiber of a telecom system two decades ago. From that time on, significant advances were made, especially over the past five years, allowing the required optical performance to be reached.

Phase ripples: a meaningful characteristic of FBG-based dispersion compensators for system impact prediction

Fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) are all-fiber wavelength selective devices used in many applications in the optical communication field, including dispersion compensation, channel filtering and blocking, optical add/drop of channels and spectral shaping, noteworthy for gain flattening in rare-earth doped fiber amplifiers.

Optical Tunable Dispersion Compensators based on Thermally Tuned Fiber Bragg Gratings

Tunable chromatic dispersion compensators are known to be critical components of 40 Gb/s systems, in addition to being already required at 10 Gb/s. Over the past 10 years, there was an extensive deployment of static dispersion compensation modules, mainly based on dispersion compensating fiber and, more recently, fiber Bragg gratings.
