BGPP addresses all aspects of grating structures, photosensitivity, glass relaxation and poling in optical fiber and waveguides from physical fundamentals, properties and fabrication approaches to applications.
Fiber Bragg Grating (FBG) devices are finding application in numerous sensing and laser devices. This meeting represents a long established forum for the presentation of the latest advances in FBG technology including advances in femtosecond grating formation as well as descriptions of various photo processes in glass, the state of the art in FBG fiber lasers, air hole micro-structured FBG devices, dispersionless and long period FBG designs, and progress in FBG processing in IR fibers. Recent FBG research results in multi-core fibers as well as FBG approaches to enhance Raman, Brillion and other frequency conversion techniques will also be discussed. Additionally, the use of FBG componentry in high power laser applications will be addressed. In the past, numerous firsts in this arena have been announced at this meeting.
BGPP continues to be a popular meeting for covering the state-of-the-art advances in fiber and waveguide
gratings in a relaxed and nonpressured atmosphere. The program is tailored for informal exchanges, forming new partnerships, and reconnecting with colleagues. Attendees come from around the world to participate in this exchange of knowledge. The meeting topics are divided into three main themes: fundamentals of photosensitivity, glass relaxation and poling, properties of grating structures and techniques used in their fabrication, and applications of gratings, glass relaxation and poled glass.
