Abstract

The technique presented here allows us to obtain an accurate determination of the refractive index modulation amplitude, the mean effective index, and the chirp of fiber-Bragg gratings. A layer-peeling algorithm is used to extract this information from low-coherence interferometry measurements. Finally, we present a systematic study over 10 uniform and chirped gratings to proof the reliability and accuracy of this technique.
