Paper Abstract

We present recent significant progress in the fabrication of polymer Bragg gratings suitable for telecom applications. We demonstrate that polymer Bragg gratings can be thermally tuned over 20nm with polarization sensitivity less than 0.05nm. Experimental data are presented to address issues of long-term performance stability, propagation loss, polarization sensitivity and practical wavelength tuning. Polymer Bragg gratings are shown to survive very stringent accelerated aging tests and exhibit long-term stability in both material properties and grating performance. The spectral performance of the gratings and example telecom applications employing polymer Bragg gratings are also discussed.
