We describe a Luus–Jaakola (LJ) optimization algorithm approach for the design of wavelength division multiplexing (WDM) optical communication systems by using phase-only sampled-fiber Bragg gratings. The LJ method is used to optimize the phase grating as well as the number of segments which form the grating. The numerical example of WDM is studied. The method is easily applicable and shows promising results with low refractive index modulation.
