The maximum bit rate/ distance product in recent single-frequency laser direct-detection lightwave system experiments has been limited by dispersion. An equalization technique, appropriate for coherent lightwave systems, that uses a microwave waveguide for overcoming the delay dispersion problem is considered. Results show that small low-loss waveguides can be used to greatly reduce dispersion. For example an 8 GHz bandwidth signal transmitted over 68 km of fiber can be equalized by a waveguide with a cross section of 6 mm×3 mm and a length of only 17 cm. With the waveguide equalizer, the dispersion-limited maximum bit rate/distance product for a standard fiber system can be increased to that of a dispersion-shifted fiber system at 1.55 μm, e.g., a 16-fold increase in maximum bit rate for 100 km transmission
