Abstract

We demonstrate a Bragg-reflection grating coupler using a nonlinear dual-core fiber with a long-period grating (LPG) and a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) inscribed in different cores. The LPG couples light from the primary core to the cladding, while the FBG operating in reflection acts to drop the channel from the secondary core. The coupler is nonreflective along the launching core. Theoretical analysis of this structure demonstrates a design for obtaining a flat-top bandpass filter with high reflectivity, steep band transitions, and negligible sidelobes. By launching an intense pump beam into the individual cores, a switchable and a wavelength tunable passband can be achieved. The results demonstrate the usefulness of the device as a grating-based all-optical element.
