Abstract

Short femtosecond pulses at 1054 nm are stretched up to 400 ps by long broadband chirped-fiber Bragg gratings. The temporal profile of the reflected pulses is measured with a cross-correlation scheme. The advantage of this technique over the usual spectral measurements is its high sensitivity, since the temporal profile of reflected pulses is revealed to be strongly affected by the presence of defects in the grating. We show that this method is a good test of the quality of fiber Bragg gratings.
