Paper Abstract

The asymmetry index profile in the transverse plane, which could be induced during the writing of fiber Bragg gratings with UV side-exposure techniques, may cause the photo-induced birefringence, as was numerically evaluated by Kokou Dossou et al. But the impact of this photo-induced birefringence on the performance of fiber grating components remains to be determined. In this paper, we numerically analyzed this kind of impact by using a finite-element method with a full vectorial formulation and the coupled-mode equations. It shows how the birefringence affects the reflection spectrum, the group delay. This numerical method will be useful in designing and analyzing fiber gratings.
