||Active tunable all-fiber components based on fiber long period gratings
Radan Slavík, Ph.D., DSc.
The project deals with fiber optic filters that are based on so-called
long-period gratings (LPGs) made in active optical fibers. The gain
should (in analogy with electronics) broaden amplitude and phase
filtering capability, allow for tuning through the control of the
optical gain, and increase functionality by integrating the
amplification and filtering. The output of this project will be a
thorough study of applicability of acitve LPG-based filters in various
disciplines ranging form fiber optic communications through all-optical
signal processing to fiber optic sensing. Selected structures will be
realized experimentally and tested in the above-mentioned applications.
