Paper Abstract

Fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) have been widely used in optical communication systems for wavelength tuning and dispersion compensation. FBGs are made by laterally exposing the core of a single-mode fiber to a periodic pattern of intense ultraviolet light. This proposes that, by exposing the fiber core to other temporary and alternative exposure sources in real time may create a gratings effect which is so called “real time virtual gratings”. The virtual gratings can be classified as a real time adaptive fiber Bragg gratings which may be used in dispersion compensation applications.
