— A double filtering function has been obtained by realization of a double Bragg gratings (BGs) structure based on titanium-diffused optical waveguides in lithium niobate Ti:LiNbO3 has been reported. Focused Ion Beam (FIB) technique is being used in order to obtain homogeneous periodic microstructures. This double structure (D.S.) is characterized by wavelengths reflected around the bands 1203nm and 1527nm with a coefficient of about 96% and Full widths at half maximums are in the vicinity of 50 and 56nm. Experimental results agree well with the results of the simulations. As a perspective, an improvement in the bandwidth of this structure is considered so that it can find its application in coding/decoding optical CDMA is discussed.
