Dispersion tuning of a linearly chirped fiber Bragg grating without a center wavelength shift by applying a strain gradient

Abstract

We propose a new method for controlling the chirp of a linearly chirped fiber Bragg grating (FBG) without a center wavelength shift by using beam bending. The beam consists of a plastic sleeve enclosing a 10-cm-long chirped FBG and a metal rod. The grating pitch could be varied to give positive or negative chirp as well as zero chirp (i.e. uniform pitch) as… (More)
