Fiber Bragg gratings
The Center will make use of two types of design tools: Simulation tools that are commercially available and simulation tools that have been developed internally where commercial tools do not exist.
In general there is an excellent agreement between the simulated results and the performances of the final devices.
Advantages of femtosecond writing
Inscription in various non-sensitized fibers, standard silica (and PM) fibers, active fibers, solid core PCF’s and specialty fibers including fluoride, chalcogenide and sapphire.
•Inscription through the fiber jacket
•Higher thermal stability compared to UV gratings (>1000℃)
