Paper Abstract

The article overviews the main properties, fabrication techniques and ares of application of long-period fiber gratings. The basic theoretical equations describing spectral properties of the gratings are given. Experimental investigation of the cladding modes excited by long-period gratings, as well as sensitivity of the long-period grating spectrum to external perturbations are discussed. The most common fabrication techniques of long-period gratings are examined with reference to their advantages and disadvantages. The most important applications of long- period gratings are discussed. Particular attention is paid to the recent results obtained with participation of the authors.
