We experimentally demonstrate compensation of the impact of Kerr-nonlinearity with positive dispersion in chirped-pulse systems. The condition for the phase-compensation is derived and design guidelines are presented. The technique is shown with a fiber-based system employing conventional diffraction gratings as well in a system that is based on chirped volume Bragg-gratings. Practical requirements on the stretching unit are discussed.
