Paper Abstract

In this paper, some recent advances in long period gratings, including (1) widely tunable single resonant band long period gratings, (2) long period gratings fabricated in single crystal sapphire fibers, and (3) long period gratings fabricated in photonic crystal fibers are presented. The applications of these novel long period grating to next generation ultra high capacity optics communication networks, high temperature distributed fiber optic sensors, and highly sensitive biosensors are discussed. Quantitative analyses and preliminary experimental results are provided.
