Paper Abstract

In this paper we present a technique to control the chirp of a fiber grating capable to produce positive or negative chirp in a single grating. The device is based ona uniform period grating written in a tapered core fiber, this grating has a positive chirp that can be reduced and removed by subjecting the fiber to mechanical stress, after some stress level the grating chirps to negative values. A chirp range of +/- 4 nm with respect to a central wavelength of 1546 nm has been experimentally achieved.
