Paper Abstract

In this contribution we compare the thermal stability of type I and type IIa gratings written in germanosilicate fibers. We study and compare their central wavelengths drifts and variations of the maximum reflectivity with temperature. Also, two other important factors, the bandwidth and group delay characteristics are characterized, compared, and the differences justified, based on the gratings physical structure.
