The present work deals with the compensation of third-order dispersion (TOD) in view of parabolic pulse (PP) generation in standard normal dispersion-decreasing fiber (NDDF) links by using phase modulator (PM) at certain position within the link. Since the inherent TOD in the fiber leads to an asymmetric pulse shape and thus degrades the PP formation, there is a strong requirement to minimize the TOD within the fiber link. It is seen that insertion of PM at the estimated critical length reduces misfit parameter satisfactorily at the output end and an equivalent PP is regenerated. A three-stage cascaded system comprising the first section of NDDF, dispersion-shifted fiber (DSF) and a normal dispersion fiber (NDF) may also be useful to mitigate TOD by showing the equivalent performance as that obtained by employing PM in the previous case.
