A fiber Bragg grating (FBG) is a type of distributed Bragg reflector constructed in a short segment of optical fiber that reflects particular wavelengths of light and transmits all others. This is achieved by creating a periodic variation in the refractive index of the fiber core, which generates a wavelength-specific dielectric fiber Bragg grating can therefore be used as an inline
A Guide to Fiber Bragg Grating Sensors 3 principle is used until today for the study and determination of crystal structure, particularly in thin film research. Sir Bragg, together with his father, won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1915 for an important step in the development of X-ray crystallography.
Cross-sectional view of bulb-T girder. Fiber-optic Bragg grating sensors 27 A cross-sectional view of the bulb-tee precast prestressed girder is provided in Fig. 6, which shows the location of the prestressing tendons, the duct for post-tensioning, and the site of the fiber-optic Bragg grating sensor installation.
In optics, a diffraction grating is an optical component with a periodic structure that splits and diffracts light into several beams travelling in different directions. The emerging coloration is a form of structural coloration. The directions of these beams depend on the spacing of the grating and the wavelength of the light so that the grating acts as the dispersive element.
The distribution of a number of FBG sensors throughout the bridge and the attachment the instrumentation to this bridge on a periodic basis are a much more efficient solution. This is only one of the good examples to demonstrate the effectiveness of the fiber Bragg grating strain sensors.

As a resonant structure, the FBG will act as a wavelength selective mirror; it is a narrow band filter. This means that if light from a broadband source is injected in the optical fiber, only light within a very narrow spectral width centered at the Bragg wavelength will be back-reflected by the grating.

Grating elements can have luminances other than that of sharp-edged bars. If the graph of a grating is sinusoidal (see top panel in the illustration), the grating looks like a set of blurry light and dark bars and it is called a sine-wave grating. Sine-wave gratings are used extensively in optics to determine the transfer functions of lenses. A

A polarization beam splitter (PBS) is one of the key components for manipulating different polarization states in the areas of optical interconnection and communication. In this paper, a PBS with two coupling regions using a subwavelength grating (SWG) waveguide as a bridge is proposed and investigated on a 340-nm silicon-on-insulator platform.
