The authors experimentally demonstrate dynamic optimization of dispersion in a nonlinear lightwave system using an electrically tunable, power efficient dispersion compensating fibre Bragg grating device. The device provides the ability to adjust, in a dynamic fashion, the dispersion compensation in a 20 Gbit/s single channel NRZ system in order to maintain optimum system performance under nonlinear conditions over a 17 dB variation in launch power.
