In this letter, a multiexposure technology for sampled Bragg gratings is proposed and investigated for the first time. Combined with reconstruction-equivalent-chirp technology, the useless zeroth-order channel can be eliminated and the plusmn1st-order channels can be enhanced significantly. The proposed method is applied experimentally to achieve a dual-wavelength fiber laser and is studied both numerically and experimentally in two ways for the optical code-division multiple access en/decoding system. Its properties may lead to more efficient design and fabrication of grating-based optical devices.
