We analyze sampled fiber Bragg gratings that have chirp in the grating period, in the sampling function, or in both. In the last-named case the sampling period can be chirped, the sample length can be chirped, or both. We explain the features in the spectral and group-delay (dispersion) responses for gratings that have a single chirp parameter. We then show how the response of sampled gratings that have multiple chirp parameters can be explained in terms of the single-chirp parameter cases.
