Paper Abstract

Based on the fiber waveguide models, a modified transfer matrix method was utilized to calculate the reflection spectrum of the thinned fiber Bragg grating (ThFBG) under the uneven surrounding refractive index (SRI) environment. Tow SRI ranges, including the high SRI region (from 1.42 to the fiber cladding index) and the low ones (from 1.33 to about 1.36), were considered. Numerical results showed that the responsive characteristics of the reflectance spectrum of the ThFBG were closely related to the properties of the SRI distribution, first, the original reflection spectrum of the ThFBG would split into many tinny resonant peaks and the reflectance spectrums are asymmetric since the uneven SRI distributions, second, the number of the resonant peaks, the decline of the amplitude, and the degree of the asymmetric of the reflectance spectrums would increase as the increase in the SRI gradient and the D-value of the SRI between the tow ends of the ThFBG. The same numerical approach could be used to analyze the responsive characteristics of the ThFBG under the uneven medium environment where the SRI distribution was any other functions.
