Due to the advancements in modern technology, there is an immense use of Internet worldwide. For the smooth transmission of the information from one end to other, systems having characteristics of more bandwidth and high capacity are required. Hence, optical fiber is used for this purpose. Like all other transmission media, optical fiber also suffers from signal deteriorating factor that includes attenuation, dispersion, and other nonlinear effects. Hence, there is need for their compensation that includes utilizing dispersion compensation techniques like DCF, FBG, EDC, and digital filters. The work in this paper evaluates the performance of distinct apodized profiles for FBG. Basically, three types of profiles: Gaussian, uniform, and hyperbolic tangent are executed and investigated at a data rate of 100 Gbps over a transmission distance of 120 km. After analyzing the outcomes, these techniques are then compared in order to get the best apodization scheme for FBG to implement so as to achieve less dispersion at the receiver end.
