Paper Abstract

We have shown the polarization mode dispersion (PMID) of chirped fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) written on different photosensitive optical fibers. PMD of FBGs on special photosensitive fibers and hydrogenated single mode fiber (SMF) was studied and compared. Experiment results showed that the chirped FBG written on hydrogenated SMF has very low differential group delay (DGD), and it adapt in long-haul optically amplified lightwave systems. The PMD of chirped FBG is determined by the birefringence of the fiber and the dispersion of the chirped FBGs. The birefringence of FBG involved intrinsic and extrinsic or photo-induced birefringence. At the end of this paper, we presented the PMID of the dispersion compensation system using CFBG as dispersion compensator.
