We propose a transmission-based dispersion compensator employing an apodized, unchirped fiber Bragg grating (FBG). A theoretical model for dispersion compensation in transmission based on the dispersive properties of the periodic structure is developed. A figure of merit is defined for optimization of the grating parameters for maximum recompression of dispersion-broadened optical pulses in long-haul communication systems. Numerical examples confirm that nearly perfect compensation with very low insertion losses can be achieved for many practical cases of interest
