Avanex Corp. has received U.S. Patent no. 6,487,342, issued under the title "Method, system and apparatus for chromatic dispersion compensation utilizing a Gires-Tournois interferometer." The patent is for the etalon-based dispersion compensation technology incorporated in its PowerShaper FDS dispersion compensation module - a photonic solution designed to enhance and extend the transmission distance of optical network signals.

Avanex's dispersion compensation solution provides slope and dispersion compensation for all optical fiber types. Its small-form factor, high input power handling and lower cost makes it an alternative to conventional dispersion compensation fiber and fiber Bragg grating solutions.
