A new fiber dispersion measurement method by utilizing a periodically swept-wavelength pulse light source is proposed and demonstrated. The periodic pulse timing variation of the pulse train induced by wavelength sweeping can be directly detected by a radio-frequency spectrum analyzer. Experiments by using an asynchronous mode-locked fiber soliton laser as the swept-wavelength pulse source have been successfully carried out to demonstrate the feasibility.
