We propose a method to reconstruct the grating period in fiber grating structures from the field reflection coefficient or the related impulse response. The method is based on the joint time–frequency signal analysis and uses the Wigner–Ville and the spectrogram distributions. Results show good agreement between exact and reconstructed functions.
