Abstract

We develop a novel method that enables one to reconstruct the structure of highly reflecting fiber Bragg gratings from noisy reflection spectra. When the reflection spectrum is noisy and the grating reflectivity is high, noise in the Bragg zone of the reflection spectrum is amplified by the inverse scattering algorithms and prevents the reconstruction of the grating. Our method is based on regularizing the reflection spectrum in frequencies inside the Bragg zone by using the data on the grating spectrum outside the Bragg zone. The regularized reflection spectrum is used to reconstruct the grating structure by means of inverse scattering. Our method enables one to analyze gratings with a high reflectivity from a spectrum that contains a high level of noise. Such gratings could not be analyzed by using methods described in previous work [IEEE J. Quantum Electron. 39, 1238 (2003)].
