Simple design of nonuniform fiber Bragg grating with sharp reflection

Turitsyna, E., Ania-Castañón, J., Turitsyn, S., Kennedy, L. and Sugden, K. (2003). Simple design of nonuniform fiber Bragg grating with sharp reflection. IN: 2003 Conference on Lasers and Electro-Optics Europe. IEEE.


In this paper we consider the possibility of using intermediate solutions, in which ideal apodisation profile for a dispersion-free, sharp-reflection profile fibre Bragg grating approximated in different degrees. The ideal apodisation profile for a flat dispersion, 50 GHz bandwidth grating was obtained using the layer-peeling algorithm. To verify the modelled results a version of the 5-section grating has been manufactured with excellent agreement between the model and the experimental results. The performance penalty due to multiple reflections from the FBGs in different situations was studied. The results showed that in the approximated gratings some post-compensation must be included to account for the local deviations from zero dispersion. © 2003 IEEE.
