Abstract

The interaction frequencies between longitudinal acoustic waves and fiber Bragg grating are numerically and experimentally assessed. Since the grating modulation depends on the acoustic drive, the combined analysis provides a more efficient operation. In this paper, 3-D finite element and transfer matrix methods allow investigating the electrical, mechanical and optical resonances of an acousto-optical device. The frequency response allows locating the resonances and characterizing their mechanical displacements. Measurements of the grating response under resonant excitation are compared to simulated results. A smaller than <1.5% average difference between simulated-measured resonances indicates that the method is useful for the design and characterization of optical modulators.
