We show by computer simulation that a coupled-cavity-type multilayered structure is suitable for the transmissive compensation of group-velocity dispersion for optical pulses of subpicosecond length, and can thus be used to make a simple, compact, and transmissive dispersion-compensation device.

Key words : group-velocity dispersion, dispersion-compensation, pulse compression, pulse recompression, chirped optical in-fiber Bragg gratings, split-step modified beam propagation method
