Abstract

In this study, a new simulation method is proposed and verified for fiber Bragg grating patterned on polarization maintaining fiber(PM-FBG) using the transfer matrix approach. The method is designed to solve the twisted PM-FBG simulation. The four mode matrix element of a period grating is derived from the S matrix element and the method only involves the torsion-induced shear strain entry exy which can be considered as the rotation of the principal axis of the polarization maintaining fiber and ignores the torsion-induced shear strain entries exz and eyz. The validity of the method is confirmed by numerical simulation of the twisted PM-FBG. The novel method provides the ability to analyze any type of PM-FBG.
