Spectral Properties of Fiber Bragg Gratings

Authors: H. Triki, Y. Hamaizi, A. El-Akrmi

Abstract:

In this paper, the reflection spectra, group delay and dispersion of a uniform fiber Bragg grating (FBG) are obtained. FBGs with two types of apodized variations of the refractive index were modeled to show how the side-lobes can be suppressed. Apodization techniques are used to get optimized reflection spectra. The simulation is based on solving coupled mode equations together with the transfer matrix method.

Keywords: reflectivity, fiber bragg gratings, coupled-mode theory, apodization
