Paper Abstract

We present a measurement setup for the complete characterization of fiber Bragg gratings and wavelength selective fiber-optic devices. We can measure the spectral response of these devices both in transmission and in reflection, the wavelength dependency of the group delays due to chromatic and Polarization Mode Dispersion (PMD), as well as the wavelength dependency of the Polarization Dependent Loss (PDL). Experimental results are presented and sources of error are discussed. Comparisons with the Jones matrix method for the measurement of PDL and group delay due to PMD are made.
