Abstract

A simple and efficient transfer-matrix method based on a discrete coupling model is presented to analyze uniform and nonuniform fiber grating couplers between copropagating core and cladding modes. Uniform and piecewise-uniform long-period gratings were fabricated by a point-by-point arc discharge technique. Their measured transmission spectra were compared with the transmission spectra calculated by the presented method.
