A new method for synthesis of fiber gratings with advanced characteristics is proposed. By combining the Runge-Kutta method for calculating the reflection spectrum of a fiber grating and a genetic algorithm, we obtain a promising method for the synthesis. Compared to other methods, the proposed method facilitates the task of weighting the different requirements to the filter spectrum. In addition, the method is general, and would thus be useful for other inverse problems.
