Influence of fringeless UV post-exposure on index modulation amplitude in fiber Bragg gratings

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Dynamics of the refractive index modulation amplitude during uniform UV post-exposure of fiber Bragg gratings at 248 nm are examined. The change in index modulation amplitude depends on the strength of the grating prior to the post-exposure and also on the degree of zero-order suppression in the phase mask used to write the grating. Furthermore, during the post-exposure, diffraction orders are observed emanating from the fiber in the absence of a phase mask. This observation is incorporated into the development of a model that successfully explains the post-exposure dynamics.
