A novel phase-only sampled 45 channel fiber Bragg grating (channel spacing, 100 GHz) with high interchannel and intrachannel reflection uniformity and precise dispersion matching capability to an 80 km SMF-28 fiber is demonstrated. This grating is fabricated by the side-writing technique, in which phase information of continuous phase-only sampling is(More)
By employing the surface and bulk micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) techniques, we design and demonstrate a simple and miniature optical Fabry-Perot interferometric pressure sensor, where the loaded pressure is gauged by measuring the spectrum shift of the reflected optical signal. From the simulation results based on a multiple cavities interference(More)
Influence of cladding-mode coupling losses on the spectrum of multi-channel fiber Bragg grating (FBG) has been numerically investigated on the basis of the extended coupled-mode equations. It has been shown that there exists a reflection slope in the spectrum of both the intra- and inter-channels due to the existences of the cladding modes. This slope could(More)
A novel continuous phase-only sampling function capable of producing up to 81-channel FBG with excellent channel uniformity and high in-band energy efficiency is presented and optimized by using the simulated annealing algorithm. In order to fabricate this kind of FBG with a conventional side-writing phase-mask technique, both the diffraction effects and(More)
A power-interrogated sensor which allows for simultaneous measurement of temperature and torsion is proposed and experimentally demonstrated, which is based on utilization of paired helical long-period fiber gratings (HLPG) with opposite helicities. Unlike most of the previous fiber grating-based sensing system, here the paired HLPGs are simultaneously used(More)
We propose a novel method for the implementation of a tunable multi-channel notch filter based on a thermally induced phase-shift phase-only sampled fiber Bragg grating (FBG). The proposed method is numerically and experimentally demonstrated. A 51-channel notch filter with a bandwidth (FWHM) of 0.026 nm and a tuning range of 0.6 nm has been achieved. This(More)
A double sampling method enabling to have excellent channel uniformity and high in-band energy efficiency is firstly proposed for the design of an ultrahigh-channel-count fiber Bragg grating (FBG), which is based on the simultaneously utilization of an amplitude-assisted phase sampling (AAPS) function and a phase-only sampling (POS) function. As examples,(More)
A continuous phase-only sampling scheme enabling one to create an ultrahigh-channel-count fiber Bragg grating (FBG) with excellent channel uniformity and high in-band energy efficiency is proposed that is based on the simultaneous utilization of two phase-only sampling functions. With this method, a linearly chirped 135-channel FBG with a length of 10 cm, a(More)
A semiconductor-optical-amplifier-based fiber laser incorporating with a phase-shifted phase-only sampled fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is proposed and experimentally demonstrated. Thanks to the intrinsic property of the phase-shifted phase-only sampled FBG, the proposed approach has an unique advantage, enabling one to tune and switch all the wavelength lasing(More)

Optical frequency comb is of an important interest for all-optical signal processing and microwave photonics. In this study, a PZT-induced phase shift occurred in a linearly chirped 51-channel FBG is experimentally demonstrated. This induced phase shift is fairly stable and the magnitude of the induced phase shift can be controlled. As an important(More)
