In this letter, we examine the spectrum of a 40-Gb/s return-to-zero (RZ) data stream, which has been broadened by self-phase modulation in a nonlinear fiber. Spectra were recorded as the residual chromatic dispersion at the input of the nonlinear fiber was varied using a tunable dispersion element. We show that spectral broadening can provide a useful measure of the residual chromatic dispersion of the data stream.
