In this paper electronic feed forward equalization is performed to mitigate the link chromatic dispersion. The equalizer coefficients are computed by a decision-directed process based on the sign-sign least mean square and the recursive least square algorithm. Therefore, this paper evaluates the performance of these algorithms in chromatic dispersion compensation at bit rate of 10 Gb/s. This paper compares these two adaptation algorithms for receiver based on analogue electronic dispersion equalizers by simulation and experiment. This paper concluded that recursive least-square algorithm is computationally more complex than sign-sign least mean square algorithm since matrix inversion is required, but achieves faster convergence.
