We present the results on fabrication and the characterization of few-mode fiber Bragg gratings (FM-FBGs) inscribed in two mode and four mode step-index fibers. Under the conditions of selective input mode launching, coupling between specific modes of interest can be selectively excited and the self-coupling and cross-coupling properties at the associated resonant wavelengths can be clearly identified and verified by observing the reflected mode intensity profiles. Such FM-FBGs can potentially be used as reflective mode-converters for mode division multiplexed data transmission systems.
