The Floquet-Bloch approach is utilized to analyze light propagation through fiber Bragg gratings. For sinusoidal gratings, the Mathieu equation is directly derived from the wave equation. The resulting stability diagram is then used to study the reflection and transmission properties of semi- infinite, as well as finite gratings. Bandwidth broadening and wavelength shifts with increasing UV exposure are demonstrated.
