Abstract

A fiber Bragg grating is inscribed in a two-mode fiber using a 193-nm excimer laser and a phase mask. Strong LP01and LP11mutual coupling as large as -22.5 dB, which corresponds to a modal conversion efficiency of more than 99%, is experimentally achieved. The intermodal coupling mechanism is theoretically analyzed through a finite element method. This device can be used as a low-cost reflective LP01↔ LP11converter.
