Fiber Bragg Grating

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 mirror. A fiber Bragg grating can therefore be used as an inline optical filter to block certain wavelengths, or as a wavelength-specific reflector.

Famous quotes containing the words fiber and/or bragg:

    I am an invisible man.... I am a man of substance, of flesh and bone, fiber and liquids—and I might even be said to possess a mind. I am invisible, understand, simply because people refuse to see me.
    Ralph Ellison (b. 1914)

    There’s nothing the British like better than a bloke who comes from nowhere, makes it, and then gets clobbered.
    —Melvyn Bragg (b. 1939)
