Paper Abstract

Fiber Bragg grating (FBG) inscription efficiencies with a nanosecond (ns) KrF-Excimer laser source at 248 nm and with a ns Q-switched, 5th-harmonic Nd:VO4 laser source at 213 nm were compared. With both laser sources the phase mask method was used for FBG inscription. The growth process of the refractive index change during UV-exposure is presented as a function of cumulated fluence for inscription in standard non-hydrogenated SMF28 fibers. The inscription efficiency was found to be significantly higher for the 213 nm than for the 248 nm radiation, indicating a higher photosensitivity at 213 nm compared to 248 nm in low Ge-doped fibers.
