Bandwidth controllable transmission filter based on Moiré fiber Bragg grating
A new and efficient technique for fabrication of bandwidth controllable π–phase-shifted fiber Bragg grating (FBG) based on moiré grating using a uniform phase mask is demonstrated. The feasibility of writing a moiré grating into an ordinary SMF-28 fiber using stretching and double exposure by ultraviolet fringe is reported. We analyzed the relation between the initial differentia of phase of two exposures and the transmission spectrum of phase-shifted FBG. Moreover, we present a novel method to control the initial differentia of phase of two exposures. Using this technique, two kinds of resonant filters with a 3-dB line-width of 0.01 nm centered at 1553.79 nm and of 0.5 nm centered at 1554.57 nm respectively were fabricated with same uniform phase mask.
