We demonstrate for the first time experimental results of chirped and chirp-apodized Bragg gratings written into planar substrates. The gratings are written using Direct Grating Writing, allowing both buried channels and gratings to be defined simultaneously. The experimental results are then compared to theory and agree well with predicted spectra.
