Abstract

We propose to use a genetic algorithm to determine the physical parameters of Bragg gratings from their reflection spectra for both design purposes and fiber sensor applications. A real-coded genetic algorithm is used for inversion purposes, along with an F-matrix formalism for synthesis of uniform, chirped, and apodized gratings. An example of bandpass filter design is also studied. The method is easily applicable and shows promising results.
