Paper Abstract

A coupled supermode approach is proposed to determine Bragg grating reflection effects in waveguides, in particular for gratings written in directional fiber couplers. The coupled supermode theory applies to a wide variety of devices and when compared to coupled individual mode theory, offers high accuracy and added precision that enable more efficient component designs.
