Numerical model of tapered fiber Bragg gratings for comprehensive analysis and optimization of their sensing and strain-induced tunable dispersion properties

Numerical model of tapered fiber Bragg gratings for comprehensive analysis and optimization of their sensing and strain-induced tunable dispersion properties

Applied Optics 54(17): 5525-5533

A versatile numerical model for spectral transmission/reflection, group delay characteristic analysis, and design of tapered fiber Bragg gratings (TFBGs) is presented. This approach ensures flexibility with defining both distribution of refractive index change of the gratings (including apodization) and shape of the taper profile. Additionally, sensing and tunable dispersion properties of the TFBGs were fully examined, considering strain-induced effects. The presented numerical approach, together with Pareto optimization, were also used to design the best tanh apodization profiles of the TFBG in terms of maximizing its spectral width with simultaneous minimization of the group delay oscillations. Experimental verification of the model confirms its correctness. The combination of model versatility and possibility to define the other objective functions of Pareto optimization creates a universal tool for TFBG analysis and design.
