Abstract

It is demonstrated that with a proper choice of embedding material, the composite beam bending method constitutes an effective and reliable approach for tuning fiber Bragg gratings. A long-term stable device is presented with a dynamic range of 80nm, which exhibits insertion losses smaller than 0.28dB and small variations of the full width at half-maximum.
