Abstract
A method for tuning the chirp ratio of a fiber grating without the central wavelength shift is proposed by using a two-fixed-end compressive beam, which induces a linear strain distribution along the grating. This technique allows dynamic control of the grating’s chirp ratio by changing the displacement of the translation stage. The 3-dB bandwidth tuning range is from 6.52 to 13.5 nm when the grating is tuned in the broadening way, while the bandwidth tuning range is from 6.52 to 0.95 nm in the compressing way. The proposed method has potential applications for the dynamic dispersion compensation and the sensors of pressure and displacement, etc., by detecting the change of bandwidth information.
