Abstract

A new and simple fabrication technique is reported for the UV inscription of intrinsically apodized chirped fibre gratings at an arbitrary Bragg wavelength employing a single chirped phase-mask in a scanning Talbot interferometer set-up. Chirped gratings have been successfully produced over a large wavelength range and with bandwidths up to 5 nm. These gratings exhibit the time-delay response of a small ripple effect. In the present paper a comparison with previously reported fabrication methods is given, showing the advantages and disadvantages of the different methods.
