Fibre gratings are proving to be one of the most important devices in a number of optoelectronic applications. They basically constitute generalised Bragg reflectors with well designed, adjustable reflection and dispersion characteristics. They can be used effectively for dispersion compensation in high-bit-rate, long-haul fibre-optic communication links, as well as, for the implementation of a variety of high quality fibre-optic laser cavities of various geometries. In this paper, we investigate thoroughly the reflective and dispersive properties of linearly chirped fibre gratings for use, particularly, in dispersion-management applications, such as dispersion compensation in communication links and short-pulse manipulation
