The grating was designed to have a band structure such that it reflected every fourth spectral peak of the input spectrum. 7. Related Periodic Structures 45 indefinitely under normal operating conditions. In contrast, a dynamic or transient grating is formed when the index changes are induced by pumping the fiber optically and last only as long as the pump light remains incident on the fiber. Such fiber gratings were first studied in 1992 and have remained an active topic of research since then [186]–[192].
