Abstract
Regenerating at constant temperature under load allows inelastic changes in glass that can be exploited to tune the Bragg wavelength of a filter to any arbitrary spectral position. We have reported < 20nm of tuning of a 1 cm grating with no limit in sight. Further, regenerating under a temperature profile allows complex spectral shaping of the grating profile. As an example, we have reported broadband chirping by more than Δλ < 9 nm over 1 cm using this approach. High temperature viscoelastic tuning therefore offers a simple and powerful low cost way of tuning the properties of fibre Bragg gratings using a single phase mask.
