Abstract: We have observed symmetrical sidebands in reflection from Bragg grating written in a silica suspended-core fiber, which are caused by longitudinal periodic refractive index modulation in the Ge-doped suspended-core fiber with a core diameter of ∼1.3 μm. Our simulation shows that the effective refractive index of the guided mode varied by 0.023% along the fiber with a period of ∼650 μm. The periodic index variation can lead to amplitude modulation of fiber Bragg gratings, which can be studied by observing the spectra of a fiber Bragg grating written in the Ge-doped core. In addition, we have also characterized the temperature and strain responses of the fiber Bragg gratings, and showed that both responses in the suspended-core fiber are 20 to 25% lower than that of a fiber Bragg grating written on a conventional fiber.
