Abstract

Fibre Bragg Gratings (FBGs) are high-performance versatile devices that have had a major impact on different areas of optical fibre technology. Their unique filtering and dispersion properties allow them to be used in DFB and DBR fibre lasers, wavelength-stabilised semiconductor lasers, gain-flattened EDFAs, Raman amplifiers and lasers, dispersion-compensators and add/drop multiplexers. We report some of the latest advances in the area of grating fabrication, fibre grating dispersion-compensators and all-fibre DFB lasers and address how our improved dispersion-compensating gratings have a performance close to that theoretically predicted.
