Abstract

We demonstrate a compact, passive temperature-compensating package for fiber gratings. The grating is mounted under tension in a package comprising two materials with different thermal-expansion coefficients. As the temperature rises the strain is progressively released, compensating the temperature dependence of the Bragg wavelength. A fiber grating mounted in a package 50 mm long and 5 mm in diameter exhibited a total variation in Bragg wavelength of 0.07 nm over a 100 °C temperature range, compared with 0.92 nm for an uncompensated grating.
