Paper Abstract

The phenomenon of photosensitivIty in optical fibres covering both Bragg- grating formation and second-harmonic generation is reviewed with emphasis on recent work. Although much is understood more research is necessary to elucidate the mechanisms and unfold the microscopic effects responsible for both observations. This exciting field has grown substantially in past years from fundamental investigations into this curious phenomenon to the applications arena impacting on fibre and semiconductor lasers sensors memory and supervisory application in telecommunications fibre taps and in novel filter applications. Cheap optical fibre frequency converters are a possibility in the future. 1
