Abstract

This study presents a synthesis method for reconstructing the multiple parameters such as grating position, length, period profile, refractive index modulation, and phase response of a chirped fiber Bragg grating (FBG) and its phase spectrum using two thermally modulated reflection intensity spectra and a genetic algorithm. In the proposed approach, the FBG parameters are determined using the genetic algorithm and are then used to reconstruct the phase response. The advantages of the proposed method include its simplicity, low cost, and nondestructive nature. Furthermore, the proposed method does not require a prior knowledge of the sign of the chirp of the grating period distribution of FBGs.
