Abstract

An all-fiber Fourier-transform spectrometer is proposed and demonstrated, based on the diffraction of light through the side of a standard optical fiber by a UV-induced fiber grating. The interference pattern, whose Fourier transform yields the optical spectrum, is formed by light diffracted from counterpropagating modes in the fiber. The device is simple and compact and functions as a wavemeter, a fiber-optic network monitor, or a tool for fabrication and testing of long fiber Bragg gratings.
