Abstract

A new hybrid optimization algorithm is proposed for the design of a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) with complex characteristics. The hybrid algorithm is a two-tier search that employs a global optimization algorithm (i.e., the Staged Continuous Tabu Search (SCTS) algorithm) and a local optimization method (i.e., the Quasi-Newton method). First, the SCTS global optimization algorithm is used to find a “promising” FBG structure that has a spectral response as close as possible to the targeted spectral response. Then, a local optimization method, namely, the Quasi-Newton method, is applied to further optimize the promising FBG structure obtained from the SCTS algorithm to arrive at a targeted spectral response. To demonstrate the effectiveness of the method, the design and fabrication of an optical bandpass filter are presented.
