Fiber Bragg gratings (FBG's) have emerged as important components in a variety of light wave applications. Their unique filtering properties and versatility as in-fiber devices is illustrated by their use in wavelength-stabilized device, This new design is applicable in high speed DWM PON architecture and filter all impairments incorporated with channels.
