Paper Abstract

Fabricating of phase-shifted fiber Bragg grating (PSFBG) by a femtosecond (fs) laser postprocessing of standard single mode fiber Bragg grating (FBG) without phase mask is demonstrated. A central region of grating is irradiated by an fs laser assisted with a rotating jig, which produces a π phase shift at the central region of the grating and forms a π phase-shifted FBG. The procedure is simple, fast, and has good reproductivity. The bandwidth of transmission peak of PSFBG grows with an increasing amount of laser energy or length of irradiation and decreasing of translation speed; the transmission loss decreases with increasing irradiation length. Additionally, the repeatability of fs postprocessing and temperature stability of PSFBG were investigated.
