Paper Abstract

Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) are high-performance versatile devices that have had a major impact on different ares of optical fiber technology. Their unique filtering and dispersion properties allow them to be used in DFB and DBR fiber laser, wavelength-stabilized semiconductor lasers, gain-flattened EDFAs, Raman amplifiers and lasers, dispersion-compensators and add/drop multiplexers. We report some of the latest advances in the area of grating fabrication, fiber grating dispersion-compensators and all- fiber DFB lasers and address how our improved dispersion- compensating gratings have a performance close to that theoretically predicted.
