We realized a wavelength-tunable dispersion equalizer using a pair of nonlinearly chirped fiber Bragg gratings mounted on multilayer piezoelectric transducers. The operation region can be continuously tuned up to 7 nm by applying 50 V. This device enables us to equalize the second- and third-order dispersion of dispersion-shifted fibers with different zero dispersion wavelengths over 6 mn. This performance shows that our equalizer can be employed for adaptive equalization.
