The ClearSpectrum-TDC delivers dynamic control over chromatic dispersion in the optical domain to help manage time-dependent dispersion effects in high-speed communications networks. This key component enables DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing) systems to operate at 40 Gb/s and is based on TeraXion’s well-established multichannel FBG technology. The ClearSpectrum-TDC can be used to tune dispersion on a per-channel basis or over multiple optical channels when used in-line for 10-Gb/s systems. The component possesses a large dispersion tuning range that can be doubled with TeraXion’s dual-grating TuneX configuration. The ClearSpectrum-TDC is offered in a butterfly package along with an optional electronic control subsystem to ease integration to a transmission line card.

GLOSSARY
component
1. A constituent part. It may consist of two or more parts cemented together, or with near and approximately matching surfaces. 2. The projection of a vector on a certain coordinate axis or along a particular direction. 3. In a lens system, one or more elements treated as a unit. 4. An optical element within a system.
dispersion
The separation of a beam into its various wavelength components. In an optical fiber, dispersion occurs because the differing wavelengths propagate at differing speeds. Also called chromatic dispersion.
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
