Paper Abstract

We used UV laser to write Bragg gratings on the polarization maintaining fiber (PMF). Because of the high-birefringence of the fiber, the Bragg wavelength of the grating on the two polarization axes was different. So that it could introduce great polarization mode dispersion (PMD). When the input was adapted to the axis of the grating, it can serve as the polarization compensation. We measured the polarization of the grating at the end of the article.
