High-speed optical communication transmission through standard single-mode fibers at 1.55 micrometer suffers from link lengths limited to less than 4 km at 40 Gbit/s due to chromatic dispersion. Optical phase conjugation and passive dispersion compensation (PDC) are the two methods used to extend the length limited by the dispersion. In this paper, error free unrepeated 40 Gbit/s transmission over 150 km of standard fiber is reported using only PDC. Post-compensation schemes were used to allow higher input power and therefore longer transmission length.
