Dispersion equalizers designed to compensate for the arbitrary dispersion characteristics of optical fibers can be synthesized by cascading chirped fiber Bragg gratings and optical circulators. A synthesis rule for the equalizers is derived and applied to the fabrication of a third-order dispersion equalizer operating at the zero dispersion wavelength.
