Reshaping periodic light pulses using cascaded uniform fiber Bragg gratings

  title={Reshaping periodic light pulses using cascaded uniform fiber Bragg gratings},
  author={N. Berger and Boris Levit and Baruch Fischer},
  journal={Journal of Lightwave Technology},
The authors demonstrate the use of cascaded uniform fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) for the generation of periodic optical pulses with arbitrary waveform. It is a significantly simplified structure compared to complex FBG shapes. The pulse shaping is based on splitting of the input pulses by low-reflecting FBGs into a number of replicas and their superposition with proper amplitude, time delay, and phase shift that depend on the FBG parameters. The reflection amplitude and phase of each grating are… CONTINUE READING
