Abstract

Surface-relief fiber Bragg gratings exhibit substantially more polarization dependence than standard fiber Bragg gratings. Using D-fiber with different core orientations, surface-relief gratings are analyzed and fabricated to determine the polarization dependence. We show that the largest Bragg reflection occurs for the polarization state with a dominant TE field component parallel to the flat surface of the fiber. The polarization dependence is adjusted by changing the index of refraction of the surrounding media and by fabricating the surface relief grating using rotated core D-fiber.
