A fiber grating (FG) is a periodic perturbation of the refractive index along the fiber length which is formed by exposure of the core to an intense optical pattern. Fiber gratings work as narrow-band pass optical filters, which reflect specific wavelengths and pass the rest, providing the advantages of high selectivity, low insertion loss and no polarization sensitivity.
