Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) attract great attention due to their present and prospective applications in fiber-optical communication systems and modem opto-electronics. FBGs are components having a wide range of applications in the fields of communication, lasers and sensors. This study is a theoretical study in the field of FBG. Our aim is, by using coupled-mode theory and changing-of-index variation function, to model the FBG and to elucidate the appropriate parameters of FBG. Diffraction spectra of a FBG and its first and second degrees were obtained. Maximum reflection of FBGs versus saturation coefficient was also examined.
