Abstract

In this paper, the effects of compression induced birefringence on reflection spectra of fiber Bragg gratings (FBG) is investigated experimentally together with the theoretical analysis. The coupled mode theory has been employed, by considering the LPxand LPymodes, to obtain accurate results for optical responses of FBG with compression-induced birefringence. The effects of polarization states of the incident light and compression conditions have also been investigated. Good agreements between experimental results and numerical simulations have been obtained.
