Paper Abstract

Effect of the cladding-mode coupling losses on the spectrum of multi-channel fiber Bragg grating (FBG) has been numerically investigated on the basis of the extended coupled-mode equations. It has been shown that there exists a reflection slope in the spectrum of both the intra- and inter-channels due to the existences of the cladding-modes. This slope could be larger than 1 dB when the induced index change is about 3x10-3, which makes the channels especially the one at the shortest wavelength considerably asymmetric. For comparison, a 39-channel linearly chirped FBG with a channel spacing of 0.8 nm and a chromatic dispersion of -850 ps/nm has been designed and fabricated. The experimental results show good agreement with the numerical ones.
