Broadband fiber Bragg gratings for dispersion management

  • James F. Brennan
Part of the Optical and Fiber Communications Reports book series (OFCR, volume 5)

This paper provides an overview and technology update of a dispersion management component made from chirped fiber Bragg gratings. The history and technology of fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) have been extensively covered in several excellent review articles, [1–6] book chapters, [7] and books. [8,9] We give a brief overview of fiber Bragg grating technology in this section and then focus on the details concerned with construction and performance of dispersion management devices in optical communications systems with a single broadband long-length grating used in reflection. Sampled chirped grating are sometimes referred to as broadband devices, but they actually have a narrow bandwidth of operation that is periodically repeated across a given spectral range. Although these periodic devices have shown promise as dispersion management devices in communications systems, they will not be discussed in this paper.
