We propose a novel method for the implementation of a tunable multi-channel notch filter based on a thermally induced phase-shift phase-only sampled fiber Bragg grating (FBG). The proposed method is numerically and experimentally demonstrated. A 51-channel notch filter with a bandwidth (FWHM) of 0.026 nm and a tuning range of 0.6 nm has been achieved. This proposed technique offers the potential applications to the multiwavelength fiber laser and multi-channel all optical logic devices.
