We demonstrate theoretically that chirped dynamic gratings can be created in optical fibers through stimulated Brillouin scattering with frequency-chirped “signal” and “write” pulses. When the grating is interrogated with a third pulse of the opposite chirp, a compressed signal pulse is retrieved. This provides a method to regenerate stored pulses and enhance signal levels for communications applications.
