Binary and multilevel phase-only sampling functions are proposed for the sampled fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) with high channel count, which require significantly less refractive-index modulation than that does the sampled grating with amplitude sampling. The design using the new simulated quenching optimization with temperature rescaling results in high channel uniformity and minimum energy in the out-of-band channels. The technique can be applied to the sampled FBGs with very high channel count. A five-channel nonlinearly chirped multilevel phase-only sampled FBG for tunable chromatic dispersion compensation is demonstrated.
