Paper Abstract

In a highly Ge doped photosensitive fiber, co doped with phosphorus and fluorine and with a doped inner cladding, we observed, during annealing experiments, an anomalous variation of the FBG strength as a function of temperature and time. This characteristic only occurred when the fiber had been loaded with hydrogen. During a stepwise temperature increase from room temperature to 1200°C, the gratings showed, after an initial thermal decay, in two distinct temperature ranges a significant increase in reflectivity with time. One range with an increase in reflectivity was found between 850°C and 1000°C. The behaviors of the FBGs in this range were very similar to that known from chemical composition or regenerated gratings. Another temperature range with increasing reflectivity was found between 500°C and 700°C, followed by a strong decrease in reflectivity at temperatures between 750°C to 800°C. Both regimes of regeneration might be associated with changes in the core and doped inner cladding of this type of fiber.
