Mechanism of Type IIA Photosensitivity in Optical Fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


Formation of the type IIA Bragg gratings in germanosilicate optical fibers is studied. We report inscription of the type IIA gratings in the standard single-mode fiber Corning SMF-28 under different experimental conditions. A mechanism for the type IIA photosensitivity is proposed which is based on nucleation and evolution of pores from vacancy-type defects.
