Abstract
We propose a new and simple method to reconstruct the refractive-index modulation of a symmetric fiber Bragg grating (FBG) from its magnitude reflection spectrum (i.e., phase information is not required). The reconstruction method uses an FBG model based on some known parameters of the fabricated FBG (grating length, number of subgratings, and grating period) and an optimization technique, namely, the Quasi-Newton method, to find the local parameter values of the FBG. To our knowledge, this is the first time that the reconstruction of FBG is experimentally realized by an optimization technique. Compared with other reconstruction methods, the proposed method is so simple that it requires only the reflection spectrum of the fabricated FBG.
