Paper Abstract

Cladding resonances generated in a Tilted Fiber Bragg Grating (TFBG) structure are readily employed for sensing purposes. They interact readily with surrounding media and allow for employing accurate refractometric applications. The grating parameters like angle of tilt, length and pitch of grating, have considerable impact on the nature of cladding resonances generated, and it turn, highly govern the specifics of sensing, like dynamic range, sensitivity, controllability, etc. In this paper, an organised and ellaborate study and analysis has been presented, to elucidate the correlation between cladding modes excited and various grating parameters in a TFBG structure. This is intended to facilitate the design of optimized TFBG sensor structures complying with pre-defined measures of sensitivity and dynamic range of operation. It is safe to imply that this study will enable fabrication of optimised sensors, according to pre-defined requirements. All analysis is based on simulations carried out on OptiGrating software and MATLAB.
