A detailed theoretical treatment is presented of bound-mode to bound-mode Bragg reflection and bound-mode to radiation-mode coupling loss in a tilted optical-fiber phase grating. Numerical predictions of the effects of grating tilt on the spectral characteristics of such a grating are calculated. These predictions are compared with experimentally measured spectra of strong gratings written by ultraviolet irradiation of deuterium-sensitized fiber with grating tilt angles ranging from 0° to 15… 

Radiation-mode coupling loss in tilted fiber phase gratings.

We demonstrate that grating tilt is an important adjustable parameter that can be utilized in addition to the more familiar parameters of grating length and index change to tune the spectral shapes

Study of radiation modes for 45-deg tilted fiber phase gratings

We explore the use of a tilted fiber phase grating to diffract modulated rf optical signal out of the fiber. A mathematical model based on perturbation analysis is derived and used to describe the

The single, strong loss peak accompanying the Bragg reflection peak in depressed-cladding fibers is studied, thus showing a good agreement between behavior that is measured and that is predicted theoretically.

Three different grating tilting formulas for predicting the optimum grating tilt angle for strong mode coupling in planar waveguide gratings are derived from the coupled-mode analysis and ray-optics analysis.

Formation of Bragg gratings in optical fibers by a transverse holographic method.

In many network and sensor applications, small amounts of light need to be coupled out at many points from a transmission bus fiber. In-line devices with some wavelength selectivity are particularly

Optical waveguides, also known as “dielectric” waveguides, are the structures that are used to confine and guide the light in the guided-wave devices and circuits of integrated optics. This chapter
