The primary problem preventing the fabrication of wide-band filters using unchirped Bragg gratings written in photo-sensitive optical fibre is that the limited Δ n which may be achieved without loss limits the bandwidth of the device. Here, it is demonstrated that wide-band Fabry-Perot-like resonators may be fabricated using distributed mirrors formed by chirped Bragg gratings. The resonators are suitable for use in many applications including pulse multiplication in short pulse fibre lasers, and frequency-guiding filters for soliton systems.
