A high-speed demodulation technique based on microwave photonics and chromatic dispersion is proposed for distributed weak fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs). A broadband light modulated with a frequency-swept microwave is reflected by FBGs, and the reflected signal mixes with the original microwave to produce a beat frequency. A dispersion compensation fiber (DCF) changes the beat frequency within the FBG wavelength range. With a crossing microwave sweep, all wavelengths of cascade FBGs can be quickly decoded by measuring the change of the beat frequency. The Chirp-Z + Hanning window algorithm helps to analyze the beat frequency in a single cycle. By adopting the single-peak filter as a reference, the DCF thermal drift can be also eliminated. Therefore, the wavelength detection accuracy is improved, and a higher demodulation speed of 40 kHz can be realized. We have demonstrated 105 FBGs with 0.1% reflectivity and 1 m interval, with the achieved accuracy of 8 pm.

We experimentally demonstrate the first polymer optical fiber Bragg gratings inscribed with only one Nd:YAG laser (266 nm) pulse. The gratings have been inscribed in a single-mode poly (methyl methacr...
We demonstrate the fabrication of aperiodic fiber Bragg gratings (AFBGs) for their application as filter elements. Direct inscription was performed by focusing ultrashort laser pulses with an oil-imme...
Two slightly shifted gratings are inscribed, one over the other, while exploiting fiber strain in a single-mode fiber. The inscription is done with a near-infrared femtosecond laser, a phase mask, and...

We demonstrate highly efficient Bragg gratings written point-by-point by sequential single-pulse ultrashort Bessel laser beams in laser photoinscribed single-mode waveguides in bulk fused silica. The ...
This is a pilot trial testing enteral feeds that are high versus low in prebiotic fiber in 20 critically ill adults. The long-term goal is to determine the efficacy of fiber for the preven...
This randomized, double-blind, comparator controlled trial evaluated the blood glucose and insulin responses in healthy adults, after consuming a high fiber or low fiber muffin top.

Dietary fiber intake has been shown to have modest effect in lowering cholesterol. However, most of these studies were done with 20g/daily fiber intake. Not much is known about high diet...
In this research study, investigators are interested in how certain dietary fibers in the diet affect certain hormones released from your intestine after eating and how these influence you...
