In this paper we investigate experimentally and theoretically the dispersion characteristics of arrayed-waveguide gratings (AWGs) and their influence in the performance of high-speed transmission systems. The dispersion of a 17 x 17 AWG was measured using the "phase-delay" technique. Results show that dispersion is not negligible within the 10 dB transmission bandwidth. The system performance was studied in terms of the eye-closure penalty in a 40 Gbit/s system. (C) 2001 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved.
