Paper Abstract

Tunable fiber Bragg gratings (TFBGs) are investigated for single-channel and for dual-channels drop applications. The TFBGs are capable of dropping single DWDM channel or two consecutive DWDM channels in an 8-nm bandwidth in the C-band while allowing the rest of the C-band channels to passthrough. Extensive stability, reproducibility and system characterization in addition to numerical simulations were conducted to investigate the feasibility of using TFBG for ROADM applications in metro-edge optical communication networks.
