Abstract

We measured the polarization dependence of light scattered from a tilted fiber grating and found disagreement with previous volume-current perturbation analysis. However, by including the longitudinal E field of the guided wave we were able to obtain good agreement, demonstrating that, although it is small, this component cannot be neglected when scattering of weakly guided waves is considered. A first-order approximation formula for the polarization dependence was also obtained and is shown to be accurate within most of the resonance band of scattering.
