We propose a method to produce or compensate second order dispersion based on frequency-to-time conversion. Using simulations, we show that an electrically tunable second order dispersion of up to 260 ps/nm is possible. The proposed method is simple and can be realized by off the shelf components. Also, it can produce higher order dispersions and the desired dispersion can be produced for wide band signals. This method has the potential to be integrated.
