Dispersion compensation is the essential feature of an optical transmission system. Two widely used dispersion compensation techniques i.e. Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) and Dispersion Compensation Fiber (DCF) has been discussed. There will be the review of basic principle, Definition of figure, merits and conditions for dispersion compensation. There will be also discussion on how dispersion is compensated in Wavelength Division Multiplex (WDM) System using different techniques like FBG, DCF, Digital Filters and MLSE. Design techniques and implementation of FBG and DCF has been discussed.
