A scheme comprising two linearly chirped fiber Bragg gratings (LCFBGs) is proposed to suppress four-wave mixing (FWM) effects in a 22×10 Gbps dense wavelength division multiplexed (DWDM) system employing dispersion shifted fiber with 0.2 nm channel spacing. The FWM reduction in our proposed scheme has been studied by varying the input signal power per channel from − 2 to + 10 dBm. The parameters of LCFBGs are optimized to obtain a maximum quality factor for all 22 channels. The proposed method is effective even at high input power (10 dBm) and provides a simple, cost effective way to improve the transmission performance in DWDM system.
