Abstract

We present results on the characterization of the response of a dual resonance observed in the spectrum of a single long-period grating arc-induced in a B/Ge co-doped fiber to different physical parameters. The dual resonance is formed by two overlapping resonances corresponding to coupling of the core mode to symmetric and antisymmetric cladding modes. The behavior of the resonances is studied when the grating is subject to strain, bending, torsion, temperature, or external refractive-index changes. The strain, bending, and torsion sensitivities of the two resonances differ, whereas the temperature sensitivities are almost the same. The sensitivities to variation in external refractive index are the same for the two resonances when the long-period grating is straight and differ when the fiber with the grating is curved.
