A novel technique to implement a Bragg grating with multi-channel and high channel-count response based on nonuniform amplitude-only sampling is proposed. Thanks to the nonuniform sampling, a sophisticated phase modulation for the generation of multi-channel spectral response can be equivalently achieved, while the pitch of the Bragg grating is maintained uniform. The principle is presented. Two design examples with two Bragg gratings for multi-channel filtering and for multi-channel chromatic dispersion compensation are provided.
