Paper Abstract

Side polished fiber Bragg grating (SPFBG) is made as a side of cladding of a FBG is polished just to remain several micrometers by the a side polishing method, such as a method with a motor-driven polishing wheel. The response of Bragg wavelength of SPFBG to the refractive index of material overlaid on the polished area of SPFBG was investigated by both theoretical calculation and experiments. Both calculation and experiments showed that the Bragg wavelength of side polished FBG would shift to the longer as the refractive index of the overlaid material increased. The sensitivity of SPFBG to the refractive index of material overlaid on the side polished area could be used for wavelength tuning of FBG or as refractive index sensor.
