Paper Abstract

A phase-conjugate mirror was used in the amplifier section of a KrF excimer laser to fabricate fiber Bragg gratings in single mode Ge-doped silica core fibers with an uncompensated interferometer. Reflectivities as high as 26% and FWHM linewidths of 5.5 GHz at 0.817 micrometers were obtained in as-drawn fiber with a single pulse exposure.
