An apodised in-fibre Bragg grating reflector is fabricated using the phase mask photoimprinting technique. The reflector has a centre wavelength of 1550nm, a bandwidth of 0.2271111 and a peak reflectivity of 90%. At 0.4nm (50GHr) from the centre wavelength the reflectivity is 40dB lower than the peak reflectivity; this is an improvement of more than 20dB over an unapodised Bragg grating reflector with similar bandwidth and peak reflectivity.
