Paper Abstract

In this paper a theoretical prediction of a new kind of in-fiber devices is presented. They behave essentially like long-period Bragg gratings except for the fact that they are not permanent but volatile. This is because these devices are not formed by the UV-induced increment of the refractive index but by the twisting of a pristine HiBi fiber. This way, a long period fiber grating whose characteristics can be modified by changing the polarization of the incoming light is obtained.
