Optical Grating Laboratory

Optical Grating lab

Fibre Bragg gratings are written into both conventional and chalcogenide glass fibres/waveguides using novel interferometric side-write technique developed in house.

A fully flexible grating writing system allows for complex grating fabrication (apodisation, chirp) using high power UV (244 nm) and green (532 nm) laser sources aligned to the interferometric apparatus.

A combined Swept Wavelength and Dispersion Measurment System is used to measure reflection, transmission and in dispersion in the fibre Bragg gratings in the C-band (1520-1570).
