A method to induce only one permanent and localized dynamic Brillouin grating in polarization maintaining optical fibers is introduced. The generation of the grating exploits the thumbtack correlation of the chaotic laser signals. A numerical calculation, corroborated by a theoretical analysis, is performed and the grating properties, length, and reflectance determined.
