Using a unique Ti:LiNbO/sub 3/ modulator, the value of the modulation chirp parameter that minimizes the transmission power penalty caused by fiber chromatic dispersion was experimentally identified. System experiments at 5 Gb/s using nonreturn-to-zero (NRZ) amplitude-shift-keyed (ASK) transmission with direct detection reception are discussed, and the optimum values of the modulation chirp parameter versus distance for transmission at 1.5 mu m wavelength over fibre having zero dispersion at 1.3 mu m are identified. 5 Gb/s NRZ transmission was achieved through distances of 128, 192, and 256 km of conventional fiber while incurring dispersion penalties of -0.5, 0.1, and 1.1 dB respectively, by operating at the quantum chirp value.<>
