To implement the spectral Talbot effect in sampled fiber Bragg gratings (SFBGs), a hybrid technique based on a chirp effect and phase shifts is proposed. Firstly, the general phase condition is derived as the principle of this hybrid technique, and it also can be used to demonstrate other reported techniques, including the linear chirp, the periodical chirp, and the multiple phase shift technique. According to the general phase condition and the equivalent chirp coefficient in the Talbot effect, multi-channel dispersion compensators are designed with different arrangements of chirp coefficient and phase shifts. Moreover, the dispersion value can be tuned in these devices by dynamically adjusting the phase shifts of the hybrid technique. Numerical simulations are carried out to confirm the performance of such devices realized by using the hybrid technique.
