Abstract

In the recent years a large number of techniques have been developed to produce linearly chirped Bragg gratings. A novel technique based on tapering the fiber cladding in an etching bath has been recently reported, the variation of the fiber cross section results in a variation of the strain along the grating when the fiber is under tension, this strain gradient is used to chirp the grating. This technique has several advantages: apart from a good controllability resulting in high quality chirped gratings, it does not require active control, and it is highly versatile in producing a variety of chirp profiles. In this paper we report on the resultant chirp structures and applications from the versatility of this technique
