Paper Abstract

Using an ultrafast Ti:sapphire IR laser and a phase mask, fiber Bragg gratings (FBGs) with high thermal stability were fabricated in SMF-28 fiber for sensor applications and were subjected to long annealing tests at 1000 °C. FBGs that maintained more then 99.95 % reflectivity after several hundred hours at this temperature are demonstrated. The gratings perform well in cycling experiments up to 1000 °C and hysteresis in the wavelength response was not detected. The capability of this new type of FBG to be used for high temperature sensors is briefly discussed.
