From Fiber Bragg Gratings To Coaxial Cable Bragg Gratings: One-dimensional Microwave Quasi-periodic Photonic Crystals
Coaxial cables and optical fibers are two types of cylindrical waveguides used in telecommunications. Fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) have found successful applications in various fields, such as optical communications, fiber lasers, and fiber-optic sensing. In this paper, we propose and numerically investigate the implementations of various fiber Bragg configurations, including uniform, chirped, apodized, and phase-shifted configurations, on coaxial cables to generate the corresponding special types of coaxial cable Bragg gratings (CCBGs). The simulation results of different CCBGs match well with the well-known FBG theories. It is demonstrated that the reflection spectrum of a CCBG can be flexibly tailored by introducing various quasi-periodic perturbations in the permittivity of the dielectric layer along the coaxial cable. The proposed special types of CCBGs with unique characteristics could find potential applications in radio frequency signal processing, communication, and sensing fields.
